Hart Crane’s silence between the publication of The Bridge and his suicide is a sign of the new literary paradigm produced by the Great Depression. Already outdated before its publication, which ironically took place in the months that followed the Wall Street Crash, The Bridge was not a viable model for future work. Hence, the failure of the author’s projected drama on Montezuma and Cortez, and the fragmentary nature of his last writings. Faced with the public call for engagement and his personal demons, the man finally collapsed. However, his finest Mexican verse reveal a poet that was all but willing to surrender what he felt was still alive in his quest for poetic identity.
