The Crane-Rychtarik Correspondence

This website represents a prototype for a digital edition of the Crane-Rychtarik correspondence held by Fales Library and Special Collections. It features high-resolution facsimiles of the letters exchanged between the modernist poet and set designer, as well as transcriptions, metadata, and, in some cases, annotations and TEI encoding. The project is interested in considering Crane’s relationship to New York City’s geography, and several of the digitized letters have been referenced to their locations of authorship. A more robust edition of the project is currently underway.
