This novel is based on Stephen Crane's observations as a young freelance writer living and working among New York's urban poor, especially in the slums downtown around the Bowery. Maggie is about an underclass that lives an almost bestial existence, yet keeps human aspirations and a distorted and even deadly form of morality. The story was considered so raw that no publisher would touch it, and Crane borrowed money to have it printed in 1893, but few booksellers would carry it.
