I recently purchased this book for my daughter, It was a gift for her Birthday, so unfortunately I don't have first hand knowledge of the content. But according to her, she had been looking everywhere & couldn't find it anywhere, (so for me that gets the 5 star rating) I do however plan to borrow it from her as soon as I can because (from what she says)everyone should read these books. Sorry that I can't be more detailed.

This set of stories is wonderful. They are classic tales in a convenient paper back book. I have read The Red Badge of Courage so far and found it to be as entertaining a tale as it was in my youth.

OLD VERSION NOT THE COVER PICTURED

The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane describes a young man named Henry Fleming who enlists in the Union Army. Henry desires to become a hero like the Ancient Greek warriors, but when the Confederates charge, he cowardly flees from battle. Henry then goes to the forest to try to justify his actions, but the grim scene of a dead soldier looking at him helps to teach him that although he can run from battle, he cannot escape his fate. After the death of Jim Conklin, Henry's regeneration is brought about. Throughout the rest of the story, Henry must strive to earn his own personal "red badge of courage." The major theme that Crane expresses is that bravery is a temporary, but sublime absence of selfishness. Stephen Crane eloquently depicts war through this book. Moreover, he tells the story through Henry's perceptions. Crane also criticizes several characters by using his famous ironic tone. Furthermore, he seems to criticize Henry for having romantic illusions. Overall, this book is a great book because of the diction and imagery. Crane's themes convey the fact that he has spent a lot of time researching war. This book should be read by all children before they enter high school because it is not difficult to comprehend. Likewise, Stephen Crane allows any audience to enjoy reading the story because the reader can visualize any person as the soldiers in battle. Therefore, the reader possesses the power to interpret Crane's literature personally. However, the negative aspect of the book is its length because Crane includes some chapters that could be left out. To reiterate, this novel was very well-written and can be read by almost any audience. Lastly, it is not as violent as many would think.

Oh Lord...I know I will have people who will totally disagree with me on this, but DO NOT READ THE SCARLET LETTER! I LOVE reading, and I enjoy the classics very much, but this book literally set me to sleep. Maybe I am too dense to understand this piece of literature, but all I can say is Nat Hawthorne turned what could've been a great story into a dull mushpot of words.

Yes, I suppose if you are into WCW "wrasslin" and collecting unemployment this book would not be your best bet. But, for those of us that have jobs and attention spans it is a wonderful novel about the "effects of sin". Something most of the other reviewers only see on Jerry Springer. So do not listen to these reviewers who tell you to "drop the class" if you are forced to read it...look where dropping classes got them. Yes, I WOULD like that super sized.
