George’s Mother is a moving story about a mother, the little old woman, and her son, George. They are in the same tenement as the Johnsons of Maggie: A Girl of the Streets, but have a much dearer relationship. George’s mother is worried about her son. When George hears his mother is sick, he comes home immediately—despite looking uncool to his rowdy friends—and soothes his mother. He shows his deep caring for her which moves her as well. He drinks, he carouses, but George stays home quietly many nights with his mother and reads the paper.

George sees Maggie and has a magical set of moments dreaming of her as the perfect woman, but nothing happens except George sees another man take her out, and that was that. As with many such moments in Crane’s works, a moment was missed.

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.
