Synopsis
This edition of Leaves of Grass is a print of the original 1855 edition of the book. Leaves of Grass is a collection of poems that celebrate the beauty of the human body and the surrounding physical world, as well as that of the human mind and spirit. This controversial written work dared challenge the literary norms of its time, presenting a candid view of not only the virtues of society, but of its vices as well. Despite naming the collection Leaves of Grass, which was a play on the term that publishers used to degrade the value of a written work, the twelve poems contained within this book are timeless classics that can offer thought-provoking insights and fresh perspectives to the urbanized soul. These are best read while one is in communion with nature; the author had meant for the book to be taken along so that its contents can be read under the open skies. Leaves of Grass was written by Walt Whitman and was first published in 1855. This edition is a reprint of the original 1855 edition which is the best edition of this great book.
