born as: Harold Hart Crane

American poet who celebrated the richness of life in lyrics of visionary intensity. His most noted work, The Bridge (1930), was an attempt to create an epic myth of the American experience. As a coherent epic it has been deemed a failure, but many of its individual lyrics are judged to be among the best American poems of the 20th century. - Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature
