We can see that the whole work is connected with religion, and it seems to us that there is nothing more. Vision of connection with religion is the first and right step to understanding the work of this noble poet.
To comprehend his poetry deeply we should apply to his biography. Just by means of religion, this poet expresses his most intimate thoughts and feelings. In the beginning of the poem he writes about the shadows, which are forced to flee from the tower by the bell sound: According to religion, this dark side is his homosexuality.
Author explains it by means of bells: So Hart Crane shows how strong his pain is. And then we can see a double meaning expression: Further Hart Crane writes: There is no doubt that woman is Peggy Cowley, his only heterosexual partner.
But according to his biography and historical period author lived, it is very likely that his trial to establish heterosexual relations is result of social and religion impact.
Reading the last quatrain, we understand that he find relief in death: He committed suicide throwing himself overboard. We can consider this as a challenge to religion that censures suicide.
If he were not religious, nothing would prevent him from living in harmony with his own nature. On the other hand, he would never create such strong work without the pressure of religion and society, which made him to wrestle with temptation.
