Question:

Which poet critic initially praised Hart Crane as "one of the small group of contemporary masters" in a review in Poetry Magazine , only to write of Crane in a later review, "the flaws in Mr. Crane's genius are, I believe, so great as to partake, if they persist, almost of the nature of public catastrophe"?

Answer ->

Yvor Winters. Crane blamed Winters' later review of his long poem "The Bridge," for the poem's lack of success. The two, who had been friends and correspondents, never spoke again.
