The Red Badge of Courage has long been considered the first great ‘modern' novel of war by an American—the first novel of literary distinction to present war without heroics and this in a spirit of total irony and skepticism" (Alfred Kazin, from the Introduction). America's greatest novel of the Civil War is a powerful psychological study of a young soldier's struggle with the horrors, both within and without, that war unleashes.

First published in 1895, the 2004 edition includes an introduction by Alfred Kazin, "A Note on the Text" by Regina Domeraski, a short biography of Stephen Crane, and bibliography. The book can be purchased separately, as part of Hewitt's Lightning Literature & Composition curriculum, as part of the U.S. and World History pack. Hewitt uses this Beautiful Feet program for one of its high-school history courses and has a syllabus for it (See Related Items below). From the Book:

From the Book:

He was bewildered. As he ran with his comrades he strenuously tried to think, but all he knew was that if he fell down those coming behind would tread upon him. All his faculties seemed to be needed to guide him over and past obstructions. He felt carried along by a mob. . . . But he instantly saw that it would be impossible for him to escape from the regiment. It inclosed him. And there were iron laws of tradition and law on four sides. He was in a moving box.
