THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE
We are free to be ourselves, but will we choose the best version?
The Red Badge of Courage provides an empowering stage for the struggles of maturity. Though students may not face literal war as Henry Fleming does, Henry’s inner battles between glory and true honor, bravery and safety, speak to anyone coming of age. Through Stephen Crane’s characteristic realism, students examine themselves as well as Henry, processing the responsibility that comes with freedom.
