First published in 1893, Maggie: A Girl of the Streets is the first published fiction work of American author Stephen Crane. A harrowing depiction of a pretty young girl’s life in the slums of turn-of-the-century New York City and her eventual decline into prostitution, Crane’s novel is a starkly realistic examination of poverty and the challenges brought about by the rapid industrialization the United States underwent in the late 1800s. An enduring classic, Maggie is often regarded as the first example of naturalism in American fiction, a literary movement that included such authors as Theodore Dreiser and Upton Sinclair. This edition also includes three of Crane’s short stories: “The Monster,” “The Blue Hotel,” and “His New Mittens.”

    " Maggie is decent, at best. However, some of Crane's other short stories in the collection like the Open Boat and the Blue Hotel make this book worth picking up. "

    " short. terse. to the point. very illustrative. demonstrates the predator/prey relationship and social darwinist ideals of the early 20th century. shows the impact of family values and environment on individuals amazingly well. "

    " Maggie and George's Mother were great. Its because of the other included stories that I give this a three. Without them it would be a four. "

    " Short and to the point, though I think it could have benefited from a bit more detail. It's so sparse that I barely cared what happened to the characters, especially Molly, who seems almost secondary. "
