Poems by Stephen Crane (1871 - 1900)

Stephen Crane was an American novelist, short story writer, poet and journalist. He is recognized by modern critics as one of the most innovative writers of his generation. He was born on 1 November 1871 at 14 Mulberry Place in Newark, New Jersey. Crane once stated that his overall poetic aim was "to give my ideas of life as a whole, so far as I know it". His poems, which he preferred to call "lines", are typically not given as much praise as his fiction. At the age of twenty-eight, Stephen Crane died on 5 June 1900.
