Plot Summary The Red Badge of Courage consists of twenty-four chapters which follow the protagonist, young Henry Fleming, through his experience as a Union Army private during the American Civil War. The book can be organized into three parts: Part One, consisting of Chapters I through VI, concerns Henry's state of mind before his first battle, his initial war experiences, when he flees from battle; Part Two, consisting of Chapters VII through XIII, explores Henry's experiences away from his regiment; and Part Three, consisting of Chapters XIV through XXIV, focuses on Henry recovering his courage and returning to his regiment, his subsequent heroism, and his final sense of achieving manhood.

What US Civil War battle is portrayed in Stephen Crane's novel The Red Badge of Courage?

Stephen Crane's novel The Red Badge of Courage was published in 1895, and is based partly on the story of the Union infantry at the Battle of Chancellorsville (April-May 1863). Crane's fictional 304th New York Infantry is likely based on the 124th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment, which fought in both Chancellorsville and Gettysburg.

What is the Summary of A Mystery of Heroism by Stephen Crane?

User Avatar
"A Mystery of Heroism" was Stephen Crane's first published story about war. In this story, a young soldier named Fred Collins must grapple with his previously conceived definitions of heroism. As the story opens, a battle in an unnamed war is raging all around Fred. Two armies are in the midst of a savage confrontation. Cannons are blasting the fields, uprooting the sod in huge clumps of earth. Gunshots exploding from both sides appear as "monstrous" bolts of lightning. Horses and soldiers who are caught in the middle have fallen to the ground. As this is going on, Fred........

Did Stephen crane ever get married?

User Avatar
Around 1897 Crane married Cora Taylor, who ran a brothel in Florida. His marriage, coupled with his unorthodox personality, aroused scandalous rumors, including those that he was a drug addict and a satanist. Because of this slander Crane spent his last years abroad; he died of tuberculosis in Germany at the age of 28.

Why does Stephen Crane say that War is Kind?

User Avatar
sarcasm The poem is ironic. The losses of war are depicted in the three main stanzas, highlighting the loss, fear and pain that comes from war... and the two choruses first suggest the glory of war but end in an ironic tone.  Crane is trying to show the futility of war by saying it is kind while it all it actually does is cause hurt, pain and suffering. The lines "virtue of slaughter" and "excellence of killing" are both ironic and oxymoronic. As is the line "Great is the battle god, great, and his kingdom/A field where a thousand corpses lie" - Crane does not mean this literally, his repetition puts heavy emphasis on the great, and suggesting the kingdom of war is inhabited only by the dead clearly shows that you should not take this statement in a literal manner.
