Contents of Hart Crane in Akron and Cleveland 1919-1923: Ohio Roads and Bridges to the Bridge

From the Introduction:

It is the 1920s. A young poet stands on a bridge at midnight. Below him the river slides black and mysterious, beyond him the lights of the city sparkle. He looks up and raises his arms towards the sky in speechless communion. His fingers 'spread among stars.' He is consumed with the visions which in a few years will culminate in The Bridge. Who might the poet be? Hart Crane, of course. And the bridge and city? The Brooklyn Bridge in New York, right? No, wrong! The bridge is the Detroit- Superior Bridge and the city is Cleveland.
