Sample text

Sections II and III seem to me the best parts of the poem. The chief point I shall hope to establish concerning the remaining parts is that the poem constitutes a genuine sequence and unity. In IV, the lovers are separated and the sea (which literally separates them) is imagined as the element that unites them (for love is a voyage upon this element, this passionate state of being) and conveys the poet's love through song; he has a vision of reunion after suffering (after being lost in "fatal tides" the "islands" will be found through the spiritual geography of the lover— "Blue latitudes and levels of your eyes") when the final mysteries ("secret oar and petals of all love") will be revealed.

SPEARS America to be explored and known, die past, the Absolute. "The Harbor Dawn" presents very beautifully the protagonist's vision of her, between sleeping and waking, in the modern city. " Both Tate and Winters consider "The River" the best part of The Bridge, with its description of the journey down the Mississippi as it appears both to the "Pullman breakfasters" on the modern train and to the hobos, who merge with the pioneers; there is no strained philosophy or symbolism, but a loving evocation of the country and the people, past and present, in concrete terms.

The "Proem" begins with the image of the seagull in its poise and freedom (its "inviolate curve," as in Hopkins' "Windhover," which Crane had certainly not yet read, suggesting a balance of the forces of control and release). This image is contrasted with that of the file clerk in his confined routine work, taken aloft only by elevators, dreaming of sails, and with that of the denizens of the cinema who hope for revelation there. The Bridge is then evoked as a parallel to the seagull, uniting motion and stillness, freedom and necessity; though, ironically, the madman commits suicide by leaping from it.
