Other Relationship Information about Stephen Crane and Cora Taylor:

Stephen Crane came to Jacksonville en route to Cuba to cover the Spanish-American War. He stayed in the St. James Hotel where they kept a list of places for guests to visit. He was already famous for his book The Red Badge of Courage, a Civil War novel. Cora met Stephen Crane in 1896 and soon became his common-law wife. Their love notes are as much philosophical as they are poetic. They maintained a tumultuous relationship until his death. She became known as the first female war correspondent when she traveled with him to Greece to cover the Greco-Turkish War for the New York press. Her pen name was Imogene Carter. Unfortunately for them, the war lasted only a month. After the war, the Cranes settled in England and socialized with the elite. They leased Ravensbrook, a villa in Oxted, and set up housekeeping where she soon became a topic of conversation due to the clash of her unconventional way of dressing and the Victorian notions of propriety. Some of Stephen's better writings were accomplished while there. Even though financial means were tight, they camouflaged that problem while they entertained lavishly.
