Stephen Crane and The Civil War - Stephen Crane and The Civil War One year after the publication of The Red Badge of Courage Crane released a continuation to the narrative in the form of a short story.  “The Veteran” characterizes an elderly Henry Fleming who recalls his first exposure to the experience of war.  Of the battle he remembers, “That was at Chancellorsville” (Crane 529-531).  While Crane never explicitly states the name of the battle in The Red Badge, the incidents mentioned in “The Veteran” indicate that the protagonist of each is one in the same (website).  Memories of his reasons for flight and sad recollections of the memory of Jim Conklin, the “tall soldier,” mirror the episodes mentioned in Crane’s second novel.  Studies have shown that the source Crane cites as his main source of information was a collection of memoirs from Union and Confederate officers.  The magazine, entitled Battles and Leaders of the Civil War (1884), was a typical publication revealing strategical information as well as topographical locations (website).  While the work did not characterize the emotions of the soldiers, it provided Crane with the necessary information to construct an atmosphere reflecting “one of the bloodiest struggles of the Civil War” (website).  An online site by the University of Virginia claims, “thematically, Crane utilized the battle of Chancellorsville in order to mount a critique of the fin de siecle American situation: the beleaguered position of the individual in a mass society, the harmful illusions of popular notions of heroism, and the abandonment, in materialistic gestures of denial, of the progress of Reconstruction begun in the Civil War.” (**Note - first paragraph of essay is a summarized version of website's findings.)          Much of Crane’s interests in the Battle of Chancellorsville stemmed from his hometown influences in Port Jervis.  Many of the men who witnessed the events that occurred on this battlefield came from this town and served as sources of inspiration for Crane’s final draft (website).  Despite his evident utilization of these sources, Crane purposefully failed to mention the actual battle in his publication of The Red Badge of Courage.  As a novel that aspired to be a psychological portrayal of fear, neglecting the historical framework became an intentional stylistic technique without which the underlined theme would inherently have been lost.  Had Crane concretized Henry’s experience with a named battle, the reactions to the novel would have altered considerably.  Inevitably people would associate imagery from the actual battle with The Red Badge of Courage, a process that would ultimately shift the perspective from Henry’s experience to the war itself.  Crane avoided these types of reactions by allowing the battle to remain nameless in the narrative.  The website quotes a more practical reason stating, none of the characters in the novel—certainly not lowly privates like Henry Fleming—would have known that the battle they were fighting in was to be called Chancellorsville.  Civil War reports and memoirs reveal that the men fighting the war very seldom knew where they were, as they often fought on unfamiliar territory and had infrequent communication with field commanders.  (As in Red Badge, the regiments often knew only rumors.)         By keeping the battle anonymous to both Henry and the audience, readers tend to identify more with the experience of the soldier rather than the entirety of the war.  By naming the battle in “The Veteran,” readers undergo a similar process of maturation with Henry.  They know nothing of the battle’s identity until after the war is over, which typifies again Crane’s emphasis on the soldier....   [tags: Stephen Crane]

Stephen Crane and The Civil War - Stephen Crane and The Civil War         While merely speculative, some biographers claim that Crane began The Red Badge of Courage in response to a challenge made by an acquaintance urging him to write a war novel that exceeded the quality of Emile Zola’s Le débâcle.  Crane, shortly thereafter, undertook the task and researched various articles in Century magazine on battles and leaders in the Civil War.  In several personal letters he writes of the process he underwent in producing the narrative and discusses his opinions and feelings in reference to the quality of his work.  While he generally concedes to the positive opinions surrounding its reviews, he makes a conscious effort to refute the notion that The Red Badge of Courage is his best piece of literature.  Rather, he admits that the novel reflects an era in his life in which his art as a writer was inevitably bettered by environmental conditions and personal circumstances.  He thus becomes like Henry the soldier, learning and developing from various experiences.  His writing reflects the changes he underwent and the maturation of his work throughout this poorer time in his life.           Crane authored The Red Badge of Courage during a time of great financial need.  It was first sent to the editor McClure, who kept the manuscript for nearly six months.  While Crane was given the impression that something would eventually be done in terms of its publication, he eventually resorted to giving the narrative to another agency, Bacheller’s.  The work was to be released by this company in January after being submitted in mid-November, but was actually published a month earlier in a shortened serial form.  It first appeared in the Philadelphia Press December 3-8 and was later published in the December 9 edition of the New York Press.  The book was finally released in book form in October of 1895 under the business of D....   [tags: Stephen Crane]

Misery, by Stephen King - Annie Wilkes - Misery, by Stephen King - Annie Wilkes What does it take to frighten an author of best-selling horror novels?  In Misery, Stephen King embodies a writer's fears about himself as a writer and about the continuation of his creativity in a richly elaborated and horrifi-cally psychotic woman, Annie Wilkes.  In the novel, Annie represents a mother figure, a goddess, and a "constant reader".  In reality, however, An-nie merely represents a creative part of King's mind. Annie Wilkes is a proud mother of two children--a historical-romance novelist, Paul Sheldon, and his extremely popular heroine Misery Chastain.  Annie must nurse and educate Paul.  Gottschalk elaborates, "Annie views Paul in a madly maternal way.  Early in her custody of Paul, she brings him pills for his excruciating pain, but he must suck them off her fingers in a grotesque parody of a nursing child" (125).  If she leaves him untended too long, Paul wets his bed, and she must change his sheets and clothes....   [tags: Misery Stephen King] 815 words

Stephen Crane - 	Stephen Crane was one of the United States foremost naturalists in the late 1800’s ("Stephen" n.p.). He depicted the human mind in a way that few others have been capable of doing while examining his own beliefs. Crane was so dedicated to his beliefs that one should write about only what they personally experience that he lived in a self-imposed poverty for part of his life to spur on his writings (Colvert, 12:108).
