“An Experiment in Misery” in a story similar to “The Men in the Storm” except that it focuses on one character, and a new fellow traveler called the Assassin, who struggle for warmth and a place for the night. The main character stops first at a saloon for free soup with a beer, where he meets the Assassin. The Assassin accosts the man seeking a few cents for a room. They join forces with the Assassin identifying the place cheap enough for the other man to stay in, and the man gives him the few cents he needs for the room. The next morning the man fronts him a few cents for breakfast and they have it together. They go to a park bench to wait while others work. They get ready in their discouraged way for another round of the same that night.

About the Author

Stephen Crane (1871–1900) was an American novelist, poet, and journalist. He worked as a reporter of slum life in New York and a highly paid war correspondent for newspaper tycoons William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer. He wrote many works of fiction, poems, and accounts of war, all well received but none as acclaimed as his 1895 Civil War novel, The Red Badge of Courage. Today he is considered one of the most innovative American writers of the 1890s and one of the founders of literary realism.
