Poet I've Neglected

I've known for some time that Hart Crane was born in Garrettsville, Ohio, not far from Kent State University and not far from the road I travelled from Washington DC to Cleveland. I've never visitedand I'm surprised that I never heard about the site from the professors at Kent. Today I found out that there are at least two memorials to Crane right in Cleveland. There's a pretty nice-looking park in the flats. I need to find out more about the sculpture here, the park is site near a bridge, and a lot of the pieces in the park look as if they contain fragments from The Bridge.

There's also a more modest memorial on the Case Reserve campus, just across the street from the bookstore I used to work in. It's amazing that I never discovered this site.
