The Red Badge of Courage

The Red Badge of Courage


by Stephen Crane

The Red Badge of Courage Chapter 11 Summary

  • In this chapter, Henry does nothing but toss and turn emotionally. Here we go, in order:
  • Henry envies the brave men who are marching boldly into battle.
  • Henry can feel himself rising to the occasion. He is filled with blood lust!
  • Henry becomes paralyzed with fear!
  • Henry moves forward to fight!
  • Henry cannot move because his body suddenly screams out with pain, fatigue, and hunger!
  • Henry decides that he is a complete coward and a "craven loon!" (Not just your regular old run-of-the-mill loon.)
  • Henry wishes he were dead.
