Über den Autor

Stephen Crane (1871-1900) was an American novelist, poet, and short story writer, acclaimed for his early use of naturalism and impressionism in literature. An emblematic figure of American literary realism, Crane is perhaps best known for his Civil War novel, 'The Red Badge of Courage' (1895), which garnered widespread acclaim for its intense and realistic depiction of a soldier's psychological turmoil. 'The Veteran and Other Stories of the Civil War,' a collection that further explores themes of valor, survival, and the chaos of warfare, reflects Crane's acute awareness of the human condition amidst the backdrop of conflict. His work is characterized by a distinctive writing style marked by vivid imagery, irony, and the exploration of existential quandaries. Crane's narratives often revolved around ordinary people in extraordinary situations, and his protagonists typically grappled with internal moral battles. Despite a short life—he died at the age of 28—Crane's prolific output left a lasting mark on American literature and continued to influence writers of the modernist movement. His contribution extends beyond tales of war, as seen in works like the gritty urban novel 'Maggie: A Girl of the Streets' (1893), which tackled subjects such as poverty and vice with unflinching candor. Crane's literary legacy endures, his writings studied and appreciated for their innovative technique and probing insight into the human psyche.
