Lover of the Fancy

Early C20th American culture and dissent

White Buildings
Hart Crane


This first book of poems by Hart Crane, one of his three major collections, was originally published in 1926. The themes in White Buildings are abstract and metaphysical, but Crane’s associations and images spring from the American scene. Eugene O’Neill wrote: “Hart Crane’s poems are profound and deep-seeking. In them he reveals, with a new insight and unique power, the mystic undertones of beauty which move words to express vision.”
