    I found it disappointing that The Red Badge of Courage, an American classic, was dull, had poor pacing, and lackluster characterization There might be historical value in this novel, written by Stephen Crane who was born nearly five years after America s civil war ended, but there is little to enjoy The novel does focus on the psyche of the protagonistso then on the war itself, but I found myself not caring I didn t care for the characters nor did I care about the battles or the war I found it disappointing that The Red Badge of Courage, an American classi...

Ernest HemingwayI think Hemingway s quote sums up the book pretty well The Red Badge of Courage was written when Crane had never seen battle it is the product of a young man s imagination he was only in his early twenties , trying to vivi Tolstoi made the writing of Stephen Crane on the Civil War seem like the brilliant imagining of a sick boy who had never seen war but had only read the battles and chronicles and seen the Brandy photographs that I had read and seen at my grandparents house.
