Hart Crane, Paperback / softback Book

Hart Crane Paperback / softback

Part of the Poet to Poet series

Description

Harold Hart Crane was born in Ohio in 1899. In 1923 he became a copy-writer in New York. White Buildings, his first collection, appeared in 1926, and in 1930 his most famous work, The Bridge, was published.

A reaction against the pessimism in T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land, The Bridge was a love song to the myth of America and its optimism a much needed boon to post-Wall Street Crash America.

Hart Crane committed suicide in 1932.
