Nathalia Crane

Data di nascita: 11. Agosto 1913
Data di morte: 22. Ottobre 1998

Nathalia Clara Ruth Crane was an American poet and novelist who became famous as a child prodigy after the publication of her first book of poetry, The Janitor's Boy, written at age 10 and published two years later. Her poetry was first published in The New York Sun when she was only 9 years old, the paper unaware that she was a child. She was elected into the British Society of Authors, Playwrights, and Composers in 1925, written up in The American Mercury and later became a professor of English at San Diego State University.After the publication of her second volume of poetry, Lava Lane, poet Edwin Markham implied that the publications were probably a hoax, stating "It seems impossible to me that a girl so immature could have written these poems. They are beyond the powers of a girl of twelve. The sophisticated viewpoint of sex, ...knowledge of history and archeology found in these pages place them beyond the reach of any juvenile mind."Crane was dubbed "The Brooklyn Bard" by the time she was 13 and became part of the Louis Untermeyer poetry circle during her late teens, with Untermeyer contributing an introduction to her 1936 volume Swear by the Night & Other Poems. He was an early promoter of her work, stating, "some of the critics explained the work by insisting that the child was some sort of medium, an instrument unaware of what was played upon it; others, considering the book a hoax, scorned the fact that any child could have written verses so smooth in execution and so remarkable in spiritual overtones" and that "the appeal of such lines is not that they have been written by a child but by a poet."She is supposedly related to Stephen Crane, author of The Red Badge of Courage, and the "well-known publicist," Dr. Frank Crane.

„The gods released a vision on a world forespent and dull;
They sent it as a challenge by the sea hawk and the gull.“

—  Nathalia Crane

Venus Invisible and Other Poems (1928), The Wings of Lead
Contesto: The gods released a vision on a world forespent and dull;
They sent it as a challenge by the sea hawk and the gull.It roused the Norman eagerness, the Albion cliffs turned red:
"You fly the wings of logic — can you fly the wings of lead?

„There is a glory
In a great mistake.“

—  Nathalia Crane

"Imperfection"
Swear By the Night and Other Poems (1936)
Contesto: p>Let go the lure
The striving to unmake;Behold the truth
Whenever heart may ache
There is a glory
In a great mistake.</p

„Yielding to nothing — not even the rose,
The dust has its reasons wherever it goes.“

—  Nathalia Crane

"The Dust" <!-- p. 23 -->
Venus Invisible and Other Poems (1928)
Contesto: Treating the sword blade the same as the staff,
Turning the chariot wheel into chaff.
Toppling a pillar and nudging a wall,
Building a sand pile to counter each fall.
Yielding to nothing — not even the rose,
The dust has its reasons wherever it goes.

„The sign work of the Orient it runneth up and down;
The Talmud stalks from right to left, a rabbi in a gown;“

—  Nathalia Crane

"The Symbols"
The Janitor's Boy And Other Poems (1924)
Contesto: p>The sign work of the Orient it runneth up and down;
The Talmud stalks from right to left, a rabbi in a gown;The Roman rolls from left to right from Maytime unto May;
But the gods shake up their symbols in an absent-minded way.Their language runs to circles like the language of the eyes,
Emphasised by strange dilations with little panting sighs.</p

„Every gaudy color
Is a bit of truth.“

—  Nathalia Crane

"The Vestal"
The Janitor's Boy And Other Poems (1924)
Contesto: p>Finally she faltered;
Saw at last, forsooth,
Every gaudy color
Is a bit of truth.
Then the gates were opened;
Miracles were seen;
That instructed damsel
Donned a gown of green;Wore it in a churchyard,
All arrayed with care;
And a painted rainbow
Shone above her there.</p

For a language so celestial setteth up a wondering.“

"The Symbols"
The Janitor's Boy And Other Poems (1924)
Contesto: p>The very serpents bite their tails; the bees forget to sting,
For a language so celestial setteth up a wondering.And the touch of absent mindedness is more than any line,
Since direction counts for nothing when the gods set up a sign.</p
