This paper summarizes and analyzes Stephen Crane's short story, "The Blue Hotel", and explains how Crane used his own personal life experiences to create the character of the Swede in the story. The paper describes the parallels that can be drawn between the Swede's life experiences and Crane's own life experiences.

From the Paper:

"The Swede is the first mentioned of three male characters that are venturing to the West. They come from the East and the Swede is by far the "wisest" of them all because he has taken the time to read the dime novels that describe in depth the dangers that exist in the wild, Wild West. The novels were highly exaggerated by propagandist type writers to help "sell" the west to adventurous types who could be lured to establish settlements and populate the area."
