Harold Hart Crane [1][2]

Harold Hart Crane (July 21, 1899 – April 27, 1932) was an American poet. Finding both inspiration and provocation in the poetry of T. S. Eliot, Crane wrote modernist poetry that was difficult, highly stylized, and ambitious in its scope.

In his most ambitious work, The Bridge, Crane sought to write an epic poem, in the vein of The Waste Land, that expressed a more optimistic view of modern, urban culture than the one that he found in Eliot's work.

He is remembered for his books "The Bridge," "Black Tambourine," "Chaplinesque," "Episode of Hands" and "The River." He died at the age of 32. He committed suicide while returning from Mexico, leaping from the deck of S.S. Orizaba, somewhere off the Florida Coast. His body was never recovered.
