Maggie: A Girl of the Streets" by Stephen Crane was first published in 1893. This novella by this famous American novelist was not very well received when it was first published. It did not win literary acclaim and public attention. However, in the following years, when the author published his other novels, this book began to be republished and it gradually began to gain the attention of both readers and critics. The story of the novel revolves around the title character Maggie. She happens to be a young girl form the Bowery. Owing to her poverty and solitude, she is compelled to live in highly miserable and unfortunate circumstances."Maggie: A Girl of the Streets" is often considered to be risque, suggestive of sexual impropriety, owing to its literary realism and very emphatic themes.--Provided by publisher
