This vintage book contains all six parts of “Notes and Fragments Left by Walt Whitman”, a collection of unpublished writings by Walt Whitman which were edited and published posthumously by his literary executor Richard Maurice Bucke. Contents include: “First Drafts and Rejected Lines and Passages, Mostly verse fragmentary, From ‘Leaves of Grass,’ Largely Antecedent to the 1855 Edition”, “Notes on The meaning and Intention of ‘Leaves of Grass’”, “Memoranda From Books and From His Own Reflections, Indicating the Poet’s Reading and Thought Preparatory to Writing ‘Leaves of Grass’”, etc. This volume constitutes a must-read for fans of Whitman’s work, and it would make for a fantastic addition to any bookshelf. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
