The broken tower : a life of Hart Crane by Paul L Mariani( Book )
7 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,110 libraries worldwide
"Few poets have lived as extraordinary and fascinating a life as Hart Crane, the American poet who made his meteoric rise in the late 1920s and then as suddenly flamed out, killing himself at the age of thirty-two and thus turning his life and poetry into the stuff of myth. A midwesterner who came to New York to remake not only the face of the city but also American poetry, this young visionary in the tradition of Whitman and Rimbaud insisted on walking always on the edge. Part of the New York gay scene of his time, Crane also played a central part in the contemporary avant-garde New York literary world, along with Cummings, Moore, Toomer, and Williams. Most of all, he gave us a singular poetry, capped by The Bridge (his extraordinary epic celebrating the fabled Brooklyn Bridge), as well as a splendid, polyphonic poetic cadence that has never been duplicated." "The first biography of Crane to appear in thirty years, The Brown Tower includes major new discoveries about Crane's life that have surfaced since the 1960s, many culled from previously suppressed letters and other manuscripts, as well as new photographs."--BOOK JACKET
Gerard Manley Hopkins : a life by Paul L Mariani( Book )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 844 libraries worldwide
"Virtually unknown in his own lifetime, Gerard Manley Hopkins, poet and Jesuit priest, has - in the course of the past seventy-five years - become recognized as one of the world's foremost poets, his works known and admired by untold thousands of readers. Like the Psalms, his poems cover the entire range of human emotions, from the sheer celebration of the world to the terrors of desolation." "Paul Mariani, an award-winning poet and biographer, here gives us a portrait forty years in the making of this brilliant and extraordinary man and poet. At each step of Hopkins's life - from his years with his large, well-to-do Victorian family in London to his years of study at Oxford in the 1860s, to the travail of his conversion, through his years of grinding study to become a Jesuit, through the writing of his groundbreaking ode, The Wreck of the Deutschland, and on through his years of intense introspection, meditation, and brilliant preaching and teaching which yielded so many unforgettable sonnets, Mariani shows us a man who always insisted on probing deeper into the mystery of God. In this scintillating analysis of Hopkins's poetry and his life, Mariani reveals for us the rich and poignant story of a great poet and that rare thing: a good man whose life and words continue to touch and inspire us."--Jacket
Thirty days : on retreat with Exercises of St. Ignatius by Paul L Mariani( Book )
7 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 314 libraries worldwide
Paul Mariani, finding himself at a crossroads in his life, leaves home one January for the month-long silent retreat of the Jesuit tradition, based on the five-century-old Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. He is there to examine his past -- as husband, father, teacher, and pilgrim -- in order to discover his place in God's plan. As day gives way to day, through a guided program of study, prayer and meditation, broken by long walks along the ice-capped shores of the North Atlantic, he takes us on a visceral and transcendental journey. Rich in history, humor, and epiphany, Mariani's journal combines a brief life of St. Ignatius with meditations on Jesus' life and His radical gift of love. Mariani also looks unflinchingly at his own transgressions and glories in a sense of renewal that sends him back into the world -- and to his family -- with a heightened sense of selflessness

From Focus World and director/star James Franco. Hart Crane was one of the most important voices in American poetry, but lived a life with as much turmoil as passion.
