Item Description...

As important a book today as it was when it was first written, The Red Badge of Courage tells the story of Henry Fielding, a farm boy who sets out in search of glory by running away from home to join the Civil War, only to find himself running away from the battlefield in terror during the first skirmish. Mortified by his cowardice, Henry yearns for a wound, his own red badge of courage, which would legitimize his desertion of his company. When Henry is finally wounded, he finds himself feeling real anger for the very first time, and finally is able to redeem himself.

First published in 1865, and in print for 137 years, Stephen Crane's story is considered one of the most important novels of the nineteenth century. It explores the dual natures of battle -- the simultaneous sensations of beauty and violence, of terror and triumph -- and masterfully mirrors them to Henry's own inner turmoil. Fervent and patriotic illustrations by Wendell Minor make The Red Badge of Courage an important addition to the Scribner Illustrated Classics series.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Red Badge of Courage  Apr 1, 2007
"The Red Badge of Courage" by Stephen Crane is a good read. One thing that I thought that made the book a little hard to read was that Stephen Crane wrote his book using "the youth", "loud soldier", "tall soldier", and others, instead of the actual character's names. I read this book because it is a classic novel, and I had to do a ninth grade English book project. I had to read this book with a dictionary by my side, because of all the words that Stephen Crane uses that were unfamiliar to me. From this book I have learned that a "red badge of courage" is a wound from battle. I'm glad that there are some people willing to fight, and gain that red badge of courage. I wasn't so sure if the youth had that courage when he fled from battle. Most of this book is the youth pondering whether or not he has the courage to face battle without fleeing. After the youth had been smacked in the head by the soldier's gun, he then got his own "red badge of courage". After reading this book I now have more respect for the soldiers that fight for our country and that they fight with courage to risk death.
