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 ofheroism, 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.

The Red Badge of Courage conveys with intense immediacy the sensations, colours, fever and chaos of battle. It concentrates on the experience of an individual soldier, and it is one of the few novels written before this century that meets our modern sense of the realities of mass warfare.

Stephen Crane: The Red Badge of Courage

Közel húsz év távlatából végre elsírhatom, hogy mennyire utáltam ezt a könyvet. Sosem szerettem a háborús témát. Lehet, hogy egyszer majd újraolvasom, hogy tudjam, változott-e bennem valami. Az egyetlen kötelező, amit igazán alig bírtam elolvasni rövidsége ellenére :-) ja…kivéve a Bánk Bánt, mert azt el sem olvastam :-)

Népszerű idézetek


He now thought that he wished he was dead. He believed he envied those men whose bodies lay srewn over the grass of the fields and on the fallen leaves of the forest.


The haste of the column to reach the battle seemed to the forlorn young man to be something much finer than stout fighting.


He had performed his mistakes in the dark, so he was still a man.


Since he has turned his back upon the fight his fears had been wondrously magnified.


He saw that it was an ironical thing for him to be running thus towards that which he had been at such pains to avoid:


He stalked like the specter of a soldier, his eyes burning with the power of a stare into the unknown.
