Stephen Crane - Walking in the sky

Walking in the sky,
A man in strange black garb
Encountered a radiant form.
Then his steps were eager;
Bowed he devoutly.
"My Lord," said he.
But the spirit knew him not.

BiBiJon says: March 1, 2011 at 3:16 pmThere is no complexity here.If these Pharisees had not hdresded orf back in 1981; they would not have been in a situation that you so lovingly describe as complex .If they had not imposed Hejab, and had relied on orf , there would have been a very popular government decades ago in Iran.So their foolishness creates a mess and now its complexity has to be tolerated and appreciated!I do not find this persuasive.

Stephen Crane was a naturalist. so yes, he was talking about religion and it is theistic but naturalists believed that the universe had control over them, so if he mentions religion he's not praising it, he is either mocking it or denouncing it's value.
