Poem: “I saw a man pursuing the horizon”

Authors. Writers. Books. Poems. Literature History.

We have spent the last two posts talking about the realism movement, so I thought I would continue the week by sharing an interesting poem by Stephen Crane (author of The Red Badge of Courage).

This is a fun one to read, so enjoy!

“I saw a man pursuing the horizon” by Stephen Crane

I saw a man pursuing the horizon;
Round and round they sped.
I was disturbed at this;
I accosted the man.
“It is futile,” I said,
“You can never—”

“You lie,” he cried,
And ran on.
