Description

Maggie, A Girl of the Streets is an 1893 novel by American author Stephen Crane. Often called a novella because of its short length, it was Crane's first published fictional work. Because the work was considered too risqué by publishers, Crane, who was 21 years-old at the time, had to finance the publication of the novel himself.

The novel takes place in the Bowery, a New York neighborhood in lower Manhattan. The story follows the life of Maggie Johnson as she struggles honestly for survival with no help and eventual opposition from her brother and parents, is left for another by a would-be suitor, endures the persecution of falsehoods from neighbors and former friends. Her downward spiral takes her through progressively worse neighborhoods and situations, into a life of prostitution, and eventually the ending of her own life. In the final chapter, Maggie’s brother tells his mother that Maggie is dead. The mother exclaims, ironically, as the neighbors comfort her, "I'll forgive her!"
