Synopsis
This book has been called the most audacious, most brilliant, most important work of poetry ever to come out of America. It has been with us for more than a century, yet its singing phrases remain as modern as tomorrow. The poem is Leaves of Grass-Walt Whitman's masterpiece, and America's song of itself. Leaves of Grass first saw print in 1855, when its author was 36 years old. It was a slim volume, and like most books by new poets, it went all but unnoticed by the reading public. Yet within a few years, two things began to happen; the poem's reputation started to grow-and so did its physical size, as Whitman added new long passages with each succeeding edition. It its pages, Whitman sang in a strong lyrical voice of himself, his nation, and all the physical universe. At the end of the Civil War,he composed an elegy to the slain President Lincoln-poem that will live till time ends. Here is a magnificent work by a major poet-a volume you will treasure for a lifetime.
