The Red Badge of Courage

Isaac Aguirre

The Red Badge of Courage (1895) continues to resonate among generations of readers, as a preeminent American Civil War Classic in the pantheon of literature. The novel is an eminent testament of the sheer military trauma, and the toils an ordinary soldier is required to withstand. In the early years of its publication, the novel was an instant success and influenced many legendary authors. The author, Stephen Crane, depicts the anxieties and fears soldiers battle with, to obtain a respectable war ego.

The protagonist is a young Union soldier in Virginia, who enlisted for military glory and the opposition of the Confederacy. His primary conflict is within his imagination, that consequently produces emotional setbacks throughout the chapters. Military life in the mid-nineteenth century is a peculiar paradox to Henry, the riveting protagonist of the novel, but he is able to maintain a steadfast resistance to the countless temptations and trials of warfare. During the duration of the book, Henry acquaints himself with veterans and superiors; while witnessing the delicacy of human life.
