The lives of Henry Johnson, an African-American coachman, and Jimmie Trescott, the son of Henry’s employer, are irretrievably and tragically altered by a fire at the Trescott home. Although Henry saves Jimmie, Henry becomes disfigured in mind and body by an explosion in the doctor’s lab.
In this moving story, author Stephen Crane asks, what is truly monstrous—the deformed man or the prejudice and intolerance of the townspeople?
