Hart Crane: An Introduction and Interpretation

By Samuel Hazo | Go to book overview

PREFACE

I HAVE WRITTEN this study of the poetry of Hart Crane because I believe Crane is one of the more important American poets of this century, because there is a dearth of book-length studies of his work available for student use, and, finally, because I disagreed with various other critical interpretations of his poems and welcomed the opportunity to present my own.

I would be remiss if I did not express my thanks to Dr. John Mahoney of the University of Detroit, Dr. Foster Provost of Duquesne University, and Mr. Edward Breisacher of Barnes & Noble for perceptive comments that contributed to the accuracy of the text. In addition, I deeply appreciate the care and patience of Mr. John Johns regarding the excellent drawings which he made especially for this study. Finally, I would like to express my gratitude to my parents, to Professors Frank O'Malley and Richard Sullivan of the University of Notre Dame and particularly to Dr. Leo D, O'Donnell who, in ways only indirectly or remotely connected with this book, made its writing possible.

S.H.
