The Red Badge of Courage and Other Stories

by CRANE, Stephen

Condition: Very Good


New York: Harper & Brothers, 1957. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition thus, introduction by Daniel G. Hoffman with this being his copy. Ownership signature of poet Daniel G. Hoffman on the front pastedown with his minimal penned and penciled notations on a few pages, spine lightly sunnhed, corners bumped, a very good copy lacking the dustwrapper. A handsome copy of one of the most influential novels of the Civil War and one of the great American novels of its time. "Harper's Modern Classics."

Henry Fleming, a raw Union Army recruit in the American Civil War, is anxious to confirm his patriotism and manhood—to earn his “badge of courage.” But his dreams of heroism and invulnerability are soon shattered when he flees the Confederate enemy during his baptism of fire and then witnesses the horrible death of a friend. Plunged unwillingly into the nightmare of war, Fleming survives by sheer luck and instinct. This edition of Stephen Crane’s poignant classic is supplemented by five of his acclaimed short stories as well as selected poetry, offering the full range of this great American author’s extraordinary talent.
