Here, in one volume, is Walt Whitman's most glorious work. Divided almost equally between his greatest poetry and prose, it includes generous excerpts from Leaves Of Grass and carefully selected portions from such prose masterpieces as Specimen Days and Democratic Vistas. In addition, it offers, in their complete form, such original and significant essays as Death Of Abraham Lincoln, Origins Of Attempted Secession, and Preface, 1855, To First Issue Of Leaves Of Grass. Brilliantly edited by Maxwell Geismar, The Whitman Reader also includes a searching introduction by Mr. Geismar, biographical and autobiographical notes, a complete index of poems, and an invaluable bibliography.
