Born in Brooklyn, New York, Adelaide Crapsey was an innovative poet, whose interest in rhythm and metre led her to create a unique variation on the ‘cinquain’, a five-line form of 22 syllables inspired by the Japanese haiku. Her surviving poetry was mostly produced in her final years, before her untimely death at the age of thirty-six. In recent years, her poems have received increased recognition, celebrated for their disciplined, yet fragile brilliance, confirming her status as a pioneer of twentieth century modernism. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Crapsey’s complete poetical works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
