Description

The Red Badge of Courage is the story of an eighteen-year-old boy whose romantic ideas about military life move him to join the Civil War, a conflict that is, to this day, the deadliest war in American history. Henry Fleming, the boy, often referred to as “the youth,” is from New York, the state to suffer the most casualties. When “the youth” finds himself in the middle of his first battle against a regiment of Confederate soldiers, he panics and deserts his regiment. From this premise, Stephen Crane explores the boy’s struggle to gain courage and maturity. There is no critical consensus on if and how Henry comes to better understand himself and the world. But readers have long praised the novel’s depiction of the chaos and psychological intensity of war.
