The paper analyzes how, in the short story "The Blue Hotel," Stephen Crane expresses his view of mankind and the way the human being is subject to a mechanical and uncaring universe. The paper examines how Crane believes humans usually have little understanding of the forces that shape them and their behavior, including the forces of society and of human psychology. The paper discusses how Crane's fiction is naturalistic, emphasizing that human life is mechanistic in nature and that the world is indifferent to the fortunes of man. The problem's of humankind are largely the fault of humankind itself.
