I am amazed at the fact that Stephen Crane was only twenty-one when he wrote this story "Maggie: A Girl of the Streets". I found it to be a genuine effort to tell a story from the inside-out instead of the usual outside-in.
I also found Crane's style very addictive. When I moved on to my next novel, I truly missed Cran's writing style. If you haven't read any of Crane's works, I suggest you start off with Maggie to see how you like him.

This book was well written. The naturalistic setting and expressive use of slang transport you back to the nasty means streets of New York at the turn of the century. Some of their values seem kind of quaint and rustic as compared to 100 years later, however the realism is staggering. One can feel the despair of a terrible life that never gets better. Death and disease are the only fates that await and there is no release.
This is not just a book to be read as an assignment, read it for the realistic view of history as a slice of life to understand what New Yorker's were going through then, and as a parable to ghetto life today. Some things have changed but some still stay the same......plus ca change.......

Hart Crane's first novel is the tale of a pretty young slum girl driven to brutal excesses by poverty and loneliness. It was considered so sexually frank and realistic, that the book had to be privately printed at first. It and GEORGE'S MOTHER, the shorter novel that follows in this edition, were eventually hailed as the first genuine expressions of Naturalism in American letters and established their creator as the American apostle of an artistic revolution which was to alter the shape and destiny of civilization itself.

I'm sorry, but real life is not as pleasurable as you and I would like it to be. Stephen Crane was one of the first authors to write about life and war as an unpleasant, realistic thing. I think his writing is like a wakeup call for people like the writers of previous entries, because life is full of sad, depressing things, such as pain and rejection. As for the vocabulary and writing style, I assume that the writers of previous entries are not in second grade anymore, so they should be able to follow, understand, and appreciate the works of some of the greatest American novelists, such as Stephen Crane.

Stephen Crane is a sham of an author. By overuse of hyperbole and a difficult to follow dialect, the reader is left groping for direction. As you can see, I was not pleased with this book.

I didn't like it, sad sad sad! Oh the pain Maggie goes through! Just horrific! Terrible and soo depressing. The book was very hard to understand because of the dialect, and what you could understand wasn't much. And you can find the book over the internet ALL written for you in half the pages! The book was disgusting... do not buy it. I advise you not to! This is your last warning.
