"In tones alternately sardonic and rueful, Stephen Crane's poems, although small in scale, address immense problems of cosmic justice and the purpose of human life. They are not quite like anything else in American poetry: uncompromisingly harsh, gnomic, deliberately anti-poetic, and shot through with unforgettable phrases and perceptions. Christopher Benfey's edition collects all Crane's poems and provides an introduction illuminating their biographical and cultural context"--Publisher description, p. [4] of dust jacket. The reputation of prose masterpieces like The Red Badge of Courage and Maggie: A Girl of the Streets ought never obscure Stephen Crane's singular contribution to American poetry. In The Black Riders (1895), War Is Kind (1899), and the best of his uncollected poems, Crane forged his own idiom: abrupt, compact, sharply visual, and brutally indifferent to the niceties of late Victorian verse. These spontaneous utterances-Crane said they came to him "in little rows, all made up, ready to be put down on paper," sometimes five or six a day-seem now like a prophetic blast of the modernist era and of the great war poetry that was to follow.
