Limited soft cover edition of 700 copies: 176 pages. Edition Galerie Vevais is pleased to present an illustrated edition of the Children of Adam cycle of poems from the American literary masterpiece , Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman. 'Children of Adam' is the legendary group of poems that caused the book to be banned in Boston at its publication in 1882. Whitman s theme was the male and female body, entirely naked in every sense and he steadfastly resisted any suggestion of censorship. This boldly illustrated new edition of the poems brings together two pioneers of American culture, both coincidentally natives of Brooklyn, New York: Walt Whitman, the beloved American poet who continues to inspire readers worldwide, and the contemporary artist Paul Cava, born more than a century later in 1949. John Wood, Arden Kass and Alexander Scholz contribute original and informative essays; technical and scholarly guidance are supplied by noted Whitman scholars Prof. Ed Folsom and Prof. Walter Grünzweig. The Children of Adam cycle from "Leaves of Grass" is a hymn of hope for a young and innocent America. It is an anthem for a democratic America and a free world -- as well as an unabashed polemic for a shame-free physical and procreative life. This book presents the controversial cluster of poems in a totally original and honest way each of the 16 poems stands alone on its beautifully designed page, leaving space for a complex relationship to develop between the sexual and spiritual nuances of the artwork and poetry.
