If you don't believe Stephen Crane was reading James Fenimore Cooper at age 4, you will when you read the poetry he wrote at age 7. Linda Davis's succinct biography emphasizes the revolutionary nature of Crane's writing, produced at the same time the Victorian world was seeing a rebirth in art called Impressionism. Mary Peiffer's cheery, pleasant voice adds sweetness to this story of an author's struggle to recreate the early success he achieved with his Civil War book, THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE, while trying to outlive the infamy of his novel MAGGIE, A GIRL OF THE STREETS. The narrator skillfully punctuates the many quotations with little pauses. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
