Reader's Diary #2035 - Stephen Crane: A Tent in Agony

 Plot-wise, I appreciate Stephen Crane's short story "A Tent in Agony." It's a surprisingly humorous tale about a bear attack on a campsite. 

However, some of the word choices are just bizarre, almost to the point where they don't make sense. At one point I stopped reading to see if it was just a bad translation. Nope, it was written in English.
