I'm working on a letter (in my head) to the NYTBR in response Logan's review.

I think Crane is like Whitman in the way he contains stretches of very bad and very good poetry. & also like in Whitman in the way that his capaciousness, & his idealism or spiritual enthusiasm, overcomes his literary faults. & thes reason these elements are able to overcome the faults is because in both cases they are undergirded by sheer poetic talent working at a very high level.

Crane is one of those strange poets who will continue to be read because their contradictions are generative - new generations find new things in them.
