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 writers.
