Like the Carroll volume above, this edition of the seasoned veteran provides a new twist. Crane's Badge was originally serialized in the New York Press in 1894, a year before the story was published in novel form. This volume offers both the slightly different serial version and the finished work. Though every library no doubt has numerous copies of Red Badge, academic and public libraries supporting American literature curricula should pop for this one, too, especially at the price.

When his regiment, the …

This work is on most standard High School reading lists, as well as it should be. I first read this one over 45 years ago, and still take if off the shelf every so often and give it a reread. The author's prose is wonderful. The story is well defined. It is an excellent example of what good writing should be. The feelings the author conveys are absolutely astounding, particuarly when you know that King never expierenced war, first hand, himself. That being said, and I do not mean this in a demeaning …
