The Black Riders and Other Lines (Version 2)


Read by Chuck Williamson

(3.5 stars; 2 reviews)

Written in a purgative frenzy of pure imagination (“They came, and I wrote them, that’s all”), Stephen Crane’s The Black Riders and Other Lines is a strange, enigmatic, and sparsely-written collection of free verse that bristles with Old Testament fury, seethes with cosmic cynicism, and touches on themes of lost faith and existential terror. - Summary by ChuckW (0 hr 41 min)
