Stephen Crane's fascinating story "The Blue Hotel" is seen by many as a study of fear. Crane used the stereotypical 1890's American West as his setting, and the story uses a card game to show how fear feeds upon itself. There are both inner fears and fears existing in reality, and the ways that they interact with each other make for a fascinating tale.More

BORING AND CONFUSING
IT WAS CONFUSING AND I THINK THERE WAS TO MUCH SETTING DESCRIPTIONS.
I WOULD CUT OUT SOME OF THE SCENE DESCRIPTIONS. THE SCENES WOULD HAVE BEEN EASIER TO KEEP UP WITH IF THEY WOULD HAVE WROTE MORE ABOUT THE SCENE AND LESS ABOUT THE SURROUNDINGS AND SETTING.
I AM NOT A AVID READER TO THESE TYPES OF STORIES SO MAYBE I MISSED THE LESSON THAT THE TEACHER WANTED US TO LEARN BUT THIS WAS JUST A BORING STORY AND CONFUSED US.
