The Complete Poems by Hart CraneThis edition features a new introduction by Harold Bloom as a centenary tribute to the visionary of White Buildings (1926) and The Bridge (1930). Hart Crane, prodigiously gifted and tragically doom-eager, was the American peer of Shelley, Rimbaud, and Lorca. Born in Garrettsville, Ohio, on July 21, 1899, Crane died at sea on April 27, 1932, an apparent suicide. A born poet, totally devoted to his art, Crane suffered his warring parents as well as long periods of a hand-to-mouth existence. He suffered also from his honesty as a homosexual poet and lover during a period in American life unsympathetic to his sexual orientation. Despite much critical misunderstanding and neglect, in his own time and in ours, Crane achieved a superb poetic style, idiosyncratic yet central to American tradition. His visionary epic, The Bridge, is the most ambitious and accomplished long poem since Walt Whitmans Song of Myself. Marc Simons text is accepted as the most authoritative presentation of Hart Cranes work available. For this centennial edition, Harold Bloom, who was introduced to poetry by falling in love with Cranes work while still a child, has contributed a new introduction.

Finding both inspiration and provocation in the poetry of T. Eliot , Crane wrote modernist poetry that was difficult, highly stylized, and ambitious in its scope. In his most ambitious work, The Bridge , Crane sought to write an epic poem, in the vein of The Waste Land , that expressed a more optimistic view of modern, urban culture than the one that he found in Eliot's work. In the years following his suicide at the age of 32, Crane has been hailed by playwrights, poets, and literary critics alike including Robert Lowell , Derek Walcott , Tennessee Williams , and Harold Bloom , as being one of the most influential poets of his generation. Crane and Grace Edna Hart. Crane's mother and father were constantly fighting, and early in April, , they divorced.
