Book Description:
Maggie: A Girl of the Streets and Other Writings about New York, by Stephen Crane, is part of the Barnes & Noble Classics series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of Barnes & Noble Classics: All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences biographical, historical, and literary to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. Written before but published after The Red Badge of Courage, Stephen Crane s Maggie: A Girl of the Streets offers a stark image of the underbelly of urban American life at the end of the nineteenth century. Maggie Johnson, a lovely innocent too slight to carry the weight of poverty, dreams of escaping New York s Bowery and the casual cruelty of her alcoholic family. After her younger brother dies, she runs off with Pete, a bartender with pretensions to wealth and culture. But Pete himself is easily seduced by the seemingly sophisticated Nellie, and Maggie finds herself abandoned in the unforgiving metropolis. Publishers feared that Crane s portrait of brutal fathers swilling away their lives in cheap bars, drunken mothers raging at terrified children, and ruined young women walking the streets, would be more than their readers could bear. But Crane s impressionistic style and thematic intensity won the day, and Maggie the author s favorite among his works helped to shape the writers that followed him and begin the era of literary naturalism. This edition also includes the short novel George s Mother, plus A Night at the Millionaire s Club, Opium s Varied Dreams, When a Man Falls, a Crowd Gathers, and several other of Crane s masterful short stories. Robert Tine is the author of six novels, including State of Grace and Black Market. He has written for a variety of periodicals and magazines from the New York Times to Newsweek.
