“BUT I LIKE IT BECAUSE IT IS BITTER, AND BECAUSE IT IS MY HEART”: CRANE’S COMPLETE WORK

CRANE, Stephen. The Work. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, (1925). Twelve volumes. Octavo, original half black cloth over cream cloth boards, black cloth cover labels. $950.

Limited edition, number 696 of 750 sets of the works of this pioneering literary naturalist, including his masterpieces The Red Badge of Courage and Maggie.

One of the first American literary naturalists, Crane scandalized literary society with Maggie, his grim tale of Bowery poverty and prostitution, in 1893; two years later, The Red Badge of Courage garnered him international praise for the realism of his battle depictions. Includes both Crane’s poetry and prose. With introductions by writers and scholars, including Willa Cather, Sherwood Anderson, H.L. Mencken, Joseph Hergesheimer, Amy Lowell and Carl Van Doren.
