This work attempts to examine Stephen Crane's novella, Maggie: A Girl of the Streets (Story of New York) as well as a sampling of his New York slum fiction known as his Bowery Tales and Midnight Sketches in light of the burgeoning technological revolution of cinema as popular art form. By my estimation, Crane's prose style is clearly influenced by early cinema particularly by its emphasis on spectacle and the episodic nature of the stories.
