Crane writes about extrordinary experiences confronted by ordinary people. His characters are not larger-than-life, but they reach the edges of their capacities for perception, action, and understanding.

Two of his works, "A Detail" and "The Open Boat", express parallel naturalistic themes. In both of these, individuals struggle for communication while being bothered by tumultuous forces.
