The Red Badge of Courage (Royal Collector's Edition) (Case Laminate Hardcover with Jacket) By Stephen Crane Cover Image


The Red Badge of Courage takes place during the American Civil War. The story follows a young private of the Union Army, Henry Fleming, who flees from the field of battle. Overcome with shame, he longs for a wound, a "red badge of courage," to counteract his cowardice. When his regiment once again faces the enemy, Henry acts as flag-bearer, who carries an American Flag.

Although Crane was born after the war and had not at the time experienced battle first-hand, the novel is known for its realism and naturalism. He began writing what would become his second novel in 1894, using various contemporary and written accounts as inspiration. It is believed that he based the fictional battle on that of Chancellorsville; he may also have interviewed veterans of the 124th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment, commonly known as the Orange Blossoms.

This case laminate collector's edition includes a Victorian-inspired dust jacket.
