Description

This antiquarian book contains a selection of poetry taken from Walt Whitman’s ‘Poetry and Prose’. It contains the first and “deathbed” editions of ‘Leaves of Grass’ together with a fantastic selection of Whitman’s prose. This wonderful collection is highly recommended for all lovers of poetry, and will be of special interest to fans and collectors of Whitman’s seminal work. Walter “Walt” Whitman (1819 – 1892), was a celebrated American poet, essayist and journalist. He was one of the most influential poets in American literature, and is often referred to as the father of free verse. His writings were extremely controversial in his time, a statement that is especially true for his poetry collection ‘Leaves of Grass’; considered to be obscenely sexual when first published. We are republishing this vintage book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition – complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
