    Red Badge of Courage is one of the greatest books I read as a boy, filling that long ago young mind with something other than the flowery trappings that most authors of his time portrayed the world as. Stephen was a realist, a much needed part of the literary world..... We all owe him a great debt of gratitude. I'm surprised this page is not filled with remarks.

Best Poem of Stephen Crane

A Man Said To The Universe:

A man said to the universe:
"Sir I exist!"
"However," replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation."

Read the full of A Man Said To The Universe:



A MAN builded a bugle for the storms to blow.
The focused winds hurled him afar.
He said that the instrument was a failure.


When the suicide arrived at the sky, the people there asked him: "Why?"
