Maggie: A girl of the streets, and A Broken Blossom
Maggie: A girl of the streets written by Stephen Crane is a story which portrays the life of a girl living in severe poverty.In this story, that characters are forced to accept life the way it has been portrayed to them in their environment.With Maggie, we find a pretty girl who is looking for a way to get out of the slums of society and to be rescued by Pete the bartender.Is it in Maggie's nature that she is to believe she has a chance to go up in the world if she meets the right man?

She would have liked to discuss his admirable mannerisms with a reliable mutual friend. At home, she found her mother often drunk and always raving.
