    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 his novels.

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

    In which Crane's novels beside these mentioned above can I find the issues dealing with American society and its culture?

    His most famous work is The Red Badge of Courage. It's about the American Civil War, which was a war between two conflicting American economies in the 1800's: the industrial urban north and the agrarian rural south. The book tells the story of one soldier.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
