"DEATH AND THE CHILD": A KEY TO THE CRANE CANON. (STEPHEN CRANE)

Date Issued:
1974
Summary:
The close association between Crane's journalistic and fictional account of the Greco-Turkish war makes "Death and the Child" one of the most forthright works in the Crane canon. From both a philosophical and technical standpoint, this short fiction work reveals Crane's maturity and sophistication at the end of 1897. A tension-release-shift structure directs the major flow of action, while at the same time suggesting the process of psychological change which the protagonist undergoes. The interpretation of the final scenes of the work, a subject of some controversy, is aided by an examination of the corresponding and contrasting elements found in The Red Badge of Courage.
