American writer, a brilliant, mystical poet and by age 25 a serious alcoholic, deeply troubled with failing health. His masterpieces include "White Buildings," 1926 and "The Bridge," 1930.
A hard-drinking homosexual, he was on a constant prowl for sailors who would agree to casual sex. Nonetheless, while in Mexico on a Guggenheim Fellowship he fell in love with Peggy Cowley and was delighted with himself for discovering heterosexual love.
April 1932 was a bad month. Perpetually short of money, Crane would solve the problem by going on a drinking binge. One night, after a day of hard drinking and torture about what his friends thought of him, he attempted suicide by taking iodine and Mercurochrome. After his recovery, Peggy thought it would be better for them to return to the U.S. and she booked passage on the steamship Orizaba. On the second day at sea, 4/27/1932, he was seen to come on deck in his pajamas, climb the rail and jump into the Caribbean. The steamer stopped and the search continued for two hours, but Crane's body was never found.
