The Red Badge of Courage

Stephen Crane

Edited by Paul Sorrentino

ISBN 9780674033993

Publication date: 04/15/2009

Stephen Crane’s weirdly impressionistic The Red Badge of Courage is one of the first non-romantic novels of the Civil War—and the first non­romantic account to gain wide popularity. Paul Sorrentino introduces Red Badge to a new generation of readers for a fuller appreciation of the novel and its effects. He has selected as his text the first edition, published by D. Appleton & Co. in 1895.


  • Paul Sorrentino is the Clifford A. Cutchins III Professor of English at Virginia Tech.
