Video: The Red Badge of Courage

National Association of Scholars

Despite his youth and lack of personal experience with warfare at the time of his writing, Crane wrote remarkably realistic depictions of battles. His writings throughout his short life would be always held up against his seminal work. How does Crane depict the themes of cowardice and heroism? What makes The Red Badge of Courage a great American novel?

This webinar features Patrick Dooley, Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor of Philosophy Emeritus at St. Bonaventure University; Lee Clark Mitchell, Holmes Professor of Belles-Lettres at Princeton University; and James Nagel, Edison Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the University of Georgia, Resident Scholar at Dartmouth College, and President of the International Society for the Study of the American Short Story. You can find links to the speaker's books here.
