Über den Autor

Stephen Crane (1871–1900) was an American writer and an exemplar of realism and naturalism in literature. Known primarily for his novel 'The Red Badge of Courage' (1895), which gained him international acclaim, Crane's body of work extends beyond this classic, delving into poetry and short stories that probe the depths of the human condition. Although his life was cut short by tuberculosis at the age of 28, Crane's influence on modern literature is indisputable. He produced several volumes of poetry, with his work often characterized by its stark, spare language and its psychological acuity. Notable poetry collections by Crane include 'The Black Riders and Other Lines' (1895) and 'War is Kind' (1899). These collections showcase Crane's innovative use of free verse and his predilection for the exploration of deep philosophical and existential questions, often against the backdrop of conflict. Crane's poetry, much like his prose, reflects his concern with themes of fear, suffering, courage, and truth, captured through a lens that is unflinching in its portrayal of reality. His literary style is noted for its early modernist tendencies, pre-dating and perhaps helping to catalyze the upcoming movements that would reshape the literary landscape in the early 20th century. Despite his brief career, Crane's contributions to American literature have earned him a place among the esteemed ranks of its progenitors, his works continuing to be studied and appreciated for their intensity and innovation.
