I feel almost guilty about how much I disliked this book I know it's an important piece of literature that it changed the way people viewed war it's an American classic etc etc But I could NOT stand it I thought it was boring and I didn't really care what happened to the main character I was totally distracted by how the author called him the youth instead of his name and I had to have my brother in law explain to me what the point of it was since I just couldn't tell Maybe my tastes will mature someday but I wouldn't count on it

Redeem himself and prove his courage The Red Badge of Courage is Stephen Crane’s second book notable for its realism and the fact that Crane had never personally experienced battle Crane drew heavy inspiration from Century Magazine a periodical known for its articles about the American. This book made my heart race and made me hear gunfireI think Crane manages to create the perfect visceral novel Sure there is symbolism if you want it but at its core this book is about experienceLike a delicate flower this book is easily ruined by too much prodding attention Just read it take it in let yourself get dragged into the story and imagery Don't think don't read it closely to prepare for a paper or discussion just experience itI would never teach this book in a class I would just mention it as one of my favorites and possibly leave a few copies around
