9780140620894: The Red Badge of Courage (Penguin Popular 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.

Book Description Penguin. Softcover. Book Condition: Neu. Ohne Schutzumschlag. Crane, Stephen The red badge of courage 158 S., Taschenbuch PENGUIN Popular Classics neu . Stephen Crane's American Civil War masterpiece The Red Badge Of Courage is one of the greatest of all war novels. Two days of fighting on a woodland battlefield are focused through the excited senses of a raw Union recruit, Henry Fleming. Dreaming of heroism, but shamefully discovering his own mortal fear of danger and death - and of fear itself - he flees from his first encounter with Confederate troops. But when he is drawn back into the battle he wins by accident his "red badge", the wound that signifies initiation into manhood and possession of courage to join the world of men.
