"The Open Boat" was written by American writer Stephen Crane in the nineteenth century. The writing style of the author was remarkable because of his extraordinary imagination. It was based on the real story which happened to Stephen Crane.
In 1896 he traveled on the ship. The ship was damaged and the author, with a few survivors, escaped on the boat. Not all people from this group stayed alive. An unpredictable fate and a cruel nature were described in the story in the genre of naturalism or realism. Even the happy ending for the narrator didn't change a tense mood of the narration; the story is written well but not for easy reading.
