The great bridge, the epic poem, America at the beginning of the twentieth century, America in the 1920s, when Hart Crane wrote this poem, America today 100 years later. I am putting together 15 illustrations, all digital, to correspond to the 15 sections of Hart Crane’s colossal poem.

I am also setting up a menu tab, The Bridge, on my WordPress site as a place for notes, comments, essays, illustrations, etc., all pertaining to Hart Crane, and The Bridge. I hope you will join in!

Here is the first illustration, To Brooklyn Bridge, the opening poem.

Savor and enjoy your trip!

It can be a difficult and dense poem, but once you cross this bridge, you will not return the same.  Who knows, you may not want to return at all.
