The Portable Stephen Crane allows us to appreciate the full scope and power of this writer's vision. It contains three complete novels - Maggie: A Girl of the Streets, George's Mother, and Crane's masterpiece, The Red Badge of Courage; nineteen short stories and sketches, including " The Blue Hotel" and " The Open Boat", a barely fictionalized account of his own escape from shipwreck while covering the Cuban revolt against Spain; the previously unpublished essay " Above All Things"; letters and poems, plus a critical essay and notes by the noted Crane scholar Joseph Katz.
