While critics usually read Hart Crane in national terms as a U.S. poet, this essay looks at Crane transnationally, focusing on the time he spent in Mexico shortly before his death, in order to suggest that Crane's personal interactions with Mexican culture and Mexicans of indigenous descent destabilized his visionary poetics.
