Hart Crane is considered a pivotal even prophetic figure in American literature; he is often cast as a Romantic in the decades of high Modernism. To escape the pressures of family life, Crane attempted to enlist in the Army, only to be rejected as a minor. He then left New York City for Cleveland and found work in a munitions plant for the duration of World War I. After the war, Crane stayed in Cleveland and found work as a reporter for the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Tensions finally exploded in the spring of 1921 when Crane’s father criticized the son’s maternal ties, whereupon Crane apparently announced that he would no longer associate with his father.

Perhaps Crane was at fault in the argument, since he had compared The Bridge to The Aeneid. attempt to substitute a study of values for a study of plot, but the values they perceive are too dependent on a system (the mystic experience, the hero's quest) external both to Crane's avowed intentions and to The Bridg e itself.

The Bridge, first published in 1930 by the Black Sun Press, is Hart Crane's first, and only, attempt at a long poem. Its primary status as either an epic or a series of lyrical poems remains contested; recent criticism tends to read it as a hybrid, perhaps indicative of a new genre, the "modernist epic. The Bridge was inspired by New York City's "poetry landmark", the Brooklyn Bridge.
