Maggie : A Girl of the Streets and Other Tales of New York Paperback
Edited by Larzer Ziff
This unflinching portrayal of the squalor and brutality of New York life produced a scandal when it was published in 1893.
Crane's novel tells the story of Maggie Johnson, a young woman who, seduced by her brother's friend and then disowned by her family, turns to prostitution.
More than the tale of a young woman's tragic fall, this is a powerful exploration of the destructive forces underlying urban society and human nature.
Also included here is 'George's Mother', along with eleven other tales and sketches of New York written between 1892 and 1896.
