In his introduction to this volume, Lee Clark Mitchell discusses how Crane broke with the conventions of both fiction and journalism to create a uniquely disruptive prose style. The five essays that follow each explore different aspects of the novel. One studies the problem of establishing the authentic text- another examines it as a war novel- a third considers it as a critique of the rising mood of militant imperialism in the 1890s- a fourth focuses on the double perspective of the novel - its shift between the heros perspective and a larger, cosmic one- and the final essay examines the novels deconstruction of courage/cowardice.

Written in a highly accessible style, these essays represent the best of recent scholarship and provide students with a useful introduction to this major novel.
