Stephen Crane Studies: New Articles

As I mentioned in Twitter, the new issues (all of 2008, vol. 17) of Stephen Crane Studies arrived yesterday, with several very interesting articles. I'd especially recommend Stanley Wertheim's "The New York Topography of Maggie and George's Mother" for anyone who studies or teaches either of Crane's so-called "Bowery Tales." Wertheim, a lifelong resident of New York as well as a renowned Crane scholar, argues convincingly that although the setting of these tales has (mis)identified as the Bowery, they largely take place in other areas of New York.

Stephen Crane Studies isn't available online, but I hope that it will be some time.
