Complete poems of Hart Crane

Author: Hart Crane; Marc Simon; Harold Bloom
Publisher: New York : Liveright, [2000]
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : [Centennial ed.]View all editions and formats
Summary:
Despite much critical misunderstanding and neglect, in his own time and in ours, Hart 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 Whitman's Song of Myself.

Marc Simon's text is accepted as the most authoritative presentation of Crane's work now available to us.

Harold Bloom's Centenary critical essay is a full-scale analysis of Crane's achievement. Bloom emphasizes Crane's creative agon with T.S. Eliot's work, which Crane could neither evade nor accept.

The introduction also examines the positive relation of Crane's poetic stance to the heroic example of Walt Whitman, Crane's chosen precursor, together with Emily Dickinson. Bloom gives fresh readings of several of the most noted lyrics in White Buildings, including "Voyages II" and "Repose of Rivers."

Defending the unity of The Bridge, Bloom analyzes the "Proem: To Brooklyn Bridge" and the concluding section, "Atlantis." He also gives particular emphasis to Crane's last great poem, "The Broken Tower."  Read more...
