Maggie: A Girl of the Streets

Length: 113 pages1 hour


Maggie: A Girl of the Streets is about an attractive young woman from the Bowery who falls for a man who promises to rescue her from poverty and solitude. This classic novella was initially rejected by publishers who considered the realistic social themes risqué for 1893. Author Stephen Crane – who was 22 years old at the time – financed the book's publication himself. After the great success of his Red Badge of Courage in 1895, Maggie was reissued to wide acclaim.
