Human Connections in Red Badge of Courage

Syed Afroz Ashrafi


The paper Human connection in Red badge of Courage sought to reestablish the notion that humanity survives the ravages of war, the war that kills and alienates a good chunk of human populace. The sounds of bullets cannot soften the tissues of heart, rather it only appalls humanity. Crane’s human connection is stressed as the succor for the tormented and oppressed nations mainly through wars.


War, nations, death, savagery
