Performance - WordStage Presents "Hart Crane"
The life of Hart Crane was tragically short, but his impact on the world of poetry was large, and the list of those he has influenced is long. Tim Tavcar, the artistic director of WordStage, invites you to contemplate the legacy of this Buckeye born literary giant through poems, letters and the music of his time. Inspired by the epic achievement of T.S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land,” yet also repulsed by its ironic despair, Crane challenged himself to articulate “a mystic synthesis of America” that celebrated the possibility of life.
