The Black Riders and Other Lines is a book of poetry written by American author Stephen Crane (1871-1900). It was first published in 1895 by Copeland & Day. Black riders came from the sea. Three little birds in a row In the Desert Yes, I have a thousand tongues Once there came a man God fashioned the ship of the world carefully Mystic shadow, bending near me, I looked here I stood upon a high place, Should the wide world roll away, In a lonely place, "And the sins of the fathers shall be" If there is a witness to my little life, There was a crimson clash of war. "Tell brave deeds of war." There were many who went in huddled procession In heaven A god in wrath A learned man came to me once There was, before me Once I saw mountains angry Places among the stars I saw a man pursuing the horizon Behold, the grave of a wicked man There was set before me a mighty hill A youth in apparel that glittered "Truth," said a traveller Behold, from the land of the farther suns Supposing that I should have the courage Many workmen Two or three angels There was one I met upon the road I stood upon a highway A man saw a ball of gold in the sky I met a seer On the horizon the peaks assembled The ocean said to me once The livid lightnings flashed in the clouds And you love me Love walked alone I walked in a desert There came whisperings in the winds I was in the darkness Tradition, thou art for suckling children Many red devils ran from my heart "Think as I think," said a man Once there was a man I stood musing in a black world You say you are holy A man went before a strange God Why do you strive for greatness, fool? Blustering God "It was wrong to do this," said the angel A man toiled on a burning road A man feared that he might find an assassin With eye and with gesture The sage lectured brilliantly Walking in the sky Upon the road of my life There was a man and a woman There was a man who lived a life of fire There was a great cathedral Friend, your white beard sweeps the ground Once, I knew a fine song If I should cast off this tattered coat God lay dead in heaven A spirit sped

Stephen Crane (1871-1900) was an American novelist, poet and journalist. He is best known for his novel Red Badge of Courage (1895). His prose is highly original, a mix of impressionism, naturalism and symbolism. Maggie: A Girl of the Streets (1893) In 1892 Stephen Crane published Maggie, Girl of the Streets at his own expense. It was a failure, considered to be immature. But more recently it has been considered to be one of the earliest American realistic novels, written with the same vividness as Crane's masterpiece - The Red Badge of Courage. Maggie is the story of a pretty girl who "blossomed in a mud puddle," was driven to prostitution, and killed herself while she was still a teenager. It is a milestone in uncompromising realism and in the early development of literary naturalism. The Red Badge of Courage (1895) Crane was then inspired to write his second novel - The Red Badge of Courage. He was tired of dryly written war stories and wondered what the men actually felt during the famous battles. The story follows 18 year old private Henry Fleming as he battles to survive, copes with guilt and eventually becomes a courageous fighter. The Black Riders and Other Lines (1895) Crane's poetry, which he called 'lines' rather than poems, was as strickingly new as his prose. It has a minimalist meter and rhyme and employs symbolic imagery to articulate irony and paradox. The Open Boat and Other Tales of Adventure (1898) Crane became shipwrecked in route to Cuba in early 1897, an experience which he transformed into his vivid short story masterpiece, The Open Boat. War is Kind (1899) War is Kind, contains more of Crane's poetry, in free verse without rhyme, meter, or even titles. The poems are typically short in length and although some poems, such as use stanzas and refrains, most do not. Crane was strikingly different to his peers because he allegory, dialectic and narrative situations. Active Service (1899) The hero of the story, Rufus Coleman, wishes to marry Marjory, the daughter of a professor. The father disapproves and drags his daughter off on a summer tour of Greece with a group of his students, only for a war to suddenly break out between Turkey and Greece. Rufus is determined to safe the group and to redeem himself in the eyes of the professor. The Monster and Other Stories (1899) These stories are considered by some to be Crane's greatest writings: - The Monster (1898) is about an African-American coachman who is considered to be a 'monster' after being horribly disfigured as a result of saving his master's son from a fire. The themes of prejudice, fear and isolation in small town America are explored. - The Blue Hotel (1898) is a story about a man who gets into trouble after staying at a hotel. - His New Mittens (1899) is a lovely tale of a boy's attempt to run away from home after his mother stops him from playing snowballs in his new mittens. Wounds in the Rain (1900) This is an excellent collection of stories, mostly told from the perspective of a correspondent reporting on the Cuban war of independence. They are moving, funny, and grim, relaying the horror of war but not in a heavy-handed way. The O'Ruddy (1903) This is Crane's final work, a romance, left unfinished at his death and completed by Robert Barr.

The Red Badge of Courage was published in 1895, when its author, an impoverished writer living a bohemian life in New York, was only twenty-three. It immediately became a bestseller, and Stephen Crane became famous. Crane set out to create "a psychological portrayal of fear." Henry Fleming, a Union Army volunteer in the Civil War, thinks "that perhaps in a battle he might run....As far as war was concerned he knew nothing of himself." And he does run in his first battle, full of fear and then remorse. He encounters a grotesquely rotting corpse propped against a tree, and a column of wounded men, one of whom is a friend who dies horribly in front of him. Fleming receives his own "red badge" when a fellow soldier hits him in the head with a gun. "The idea of falling like heroes on ceremonial battlefields," Ford Madox Ford remarked later, "was gone forever." Shelby Foote, author of The Civil The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foundation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with afford- able hardbound editions of impor- tant works of literature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy- fifth anniversary, Random House redesigned the series, restoring as its emblem the running torch- bearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inau- gurating a new program of selecting titles. The Modern Library continues to provide the world's best books, at the best prices.
