Maximilian Karnig’s ‘Good Reads’: Stephen Crane’s “The Open Boat”

Stephen Crane.jpg 5935 Maximilian Karnigs Good Reads: Stephen Cranes The Open Boat the open boat Stephen Crane short story good read

Looking for a good read, but not feeling the commitment to take on a novel? Check out Crane’s “The Open Boat”. Already read it? Maybe you should reread it. You could always get something new out of it.  Here’s a little excerpt:

“The boat was headed for the beach. The correspondent wondered if none ever ascended the tall wind-tower, and if then they never looked seaward. This tower was a giant, standing with its back to the plight of the ants. It represented in a degree, to the correspondent, the serenity of nature amid the struggles of the individual–nature in the wind, and nature in the vision of men. She did not seem cruel to him then, nor beneficent, nor treacherous, nor wise. But she was indifferent, flatly indifferent. It is, perhaps, plausible that a man in this situation, impressed with the unconcern of the universe, should see the innumerable flaws of his life, and have them taste wickedly in his mind and wish for another chance. A distinction between right and wrong seems absurdly clear to him, then, in this new ignorance of the grave-edge, and he understands that if he were given another opportunity he would mend his conduct and his words, and be better and brighter during an introduction or at a tea.”
