Description

"War Stories" is the laconic sub-title of "Wounds in the Rain". It was not war on a grand scale that Crane saw in the Spanish-American complication, in which he participated as a war correspondent; no such war as the recent horror. But the occasions for personal heroism were no fewer than always, and the opportunities for the exercise of such powers of trained and appreciative understanding and sympathy as Crane possessed, were abundant. For the most part, these tales are episodic, reports of isolated instances - the profanely humorous experiences of correspondents, the magnificent courage of signalmen under fire, the forgotten adventure of a converted yacht - but all are instinct with the red fever of war, and are backgrounded with the choking smoke of battle.

He is recognized by modern critics as one of the most innovative writers of his generation.
