Even as Hart Crane can seem a marginal presence among his peers--a poet of epic ambition in an era of self-conscious fragmentation, a romantic alongside the modernists, a queer voice alongside a more conservative criticism--he is also a poet who deliberately aligned himself with past literary traditions and poets, and a poet who has, in turn, been an important influence on subsequent poets and artists. This panel seeks proposals from critics and poets whose work engages any aspect of Crane's inheritance or influence. Please send 250-word proposals by January 20th to dlhester@g.cofc.edu.
