Condor Naught Mrs.. Williams English 11 AP February 14 2008 A Young Man’s Journey Through Chaos Another strategy used by the author was to keep the characters indistinct, such as calling Henry Fleming “the youth” and having other soldiers called ‘the tall soldier “the loud soldier” and ‘the tattered man”. By doing this Crane was able to keep the characters impersonal allowing readers to easily put themselves in that characters position instead of thinking often as a part of a book. These components along with others combined to create a novel that captivates readers and throws them into the action.
