Yet he also harbors a hidden fear about how he may react when the horror and bloodshed of battle begin. Fighting the enemy without and the terror within, Fleming must prove himself and find his own meaning of valor. &&LP&&RUnbelievable as it may seem, &&LB&&RStephen Crane&&L/B&&R had never been a member of any army nor had taken part in any battle when he wrote &&LI&&RThe Red Badge of Courage&&L/I&&R. But upon its publication in 1895, when Crane was only twenty-four, Red Badge was heralded as a new kind of war novel, marked by astonishing insight into the true psychology of men under fire. Along with the seminal short stories included in this volume--"The Open Boat," "The Veteran," and "The Men in the Storm"--&&LI&&RThe Red Badge of Courage&&L/I&&R unleashed Crane's deeply influential impressionistic style. &&L/P&&R&&LP&&R&&LB&&RRichard Fusco&&L/B&&R has been an Assistant Professor of English at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia since 1997.
