Description

This is John Burroughs’ 1896 biographical treatise of Walt Whitman, “Whitman: A Study”. It constitutes a profound and comprehensive insight into the mind and work of one of America’s greatest poets by another of America’s great men of letters. This fantastic book is highly recommended for all lovers of literature, and it is not to be missed by fans of Burroughs’ work. John Burroughs (1837 – 1921) was an American naturalist, essayist, and active member of the U.S. conservation movement. Burroughs’ work was incredibly popular during his lifetime, and his legacy has lived on in the form of twelve U.S. Schools named after him, Burroughs Mountain, and the John Burroughs Association-which publicly recognizes well-written and illustrated natural history publications. Contents include: “Whitman”, “Preliminary”, “Biographical And Personal”, “His Ruling Ideas And Aims”, “His Self-reliance”, “His Relation To Life And Morals”, “His Relation To Culture”, “His Relation To His Country And His Times”, “His Relation To Science”, “His Relation To Religion”, and “A Final Word”. 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.
