Overview

This harrowing tale of a young girl in the slums is a searing portrayal of turn-of-the-century New York, and Stephen Crane’s most innovative work. Published in 1893, when the author was just twenty-one, it broke new ground with its vivid characters, its brutal naturalism, and its empathic rendering of the lives of the poor. It remains both powerful, severe, and harshly comic (in Alfred Kazin’s words) and a masterpiece of modern American prose.

This edition includes Maggie and George’s Mother, Crane’s other Bowery tales, and the most comprehensive available selection of Crane’s New York journalism. All texts in this volume are presented in their definitive versions.

"He was the first American writer because he was the first to be passionately interested in the life that surrounded him and the life that surrounded him was that of America."
