    What's American in Crane's works?

    Hi everyone. I need your help. I've been writing a paper about Stephen Crane and melting pot so I would like to hear some of your ideas. What is, so to say, American in his works? How does his works reflect american society?
    In his novel "Maggie: A girl of the streets" Crane captures the typical problems immigrants of that time had been faced with.
    So, in what other works can we identify problems of american society?
    Which of his works best describe America?
    I simply need to find what's American in novels.

    I was thinking about "The Blue Hotel" as the theme of misconception of the American West, but I still need more ideas.

    We do not work with homework here. Your teacher wants to see your work, not ours.

    It has nothing to do with my homework. I'm on my postgraduate studies and I just want to hear your ideas as a part of my research. I want to hear differnt opinions and see how others understand the issue.

    But isn't this piece of work going to be read and graded or in some way go towards your final results? You considered it to be an assignment when you answered my first question.

    I suggest you ask this question in the General Language Discussions forum, where fellow students may wish to comment.

    Teachers in this forum will not help you.
