American bards : Walt Whitman and other unlikely candidates for national poet by Edward Keyes Whitley( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walt Whitman has long been regarded as the quintessential American bard, the poet who best represents all that is distinctive about life in the United States. Whitman himself encouraged this view, but he was also quick to remind his readers that he was an unlikely candidate for the office of national poet, and that his working-class upbringing and radical take on human sexuality often put him at odds with American culture. While American literary history has tended to credit Whitman with having invented the persona of the national outsider as the national bard, Edward Whitley recovers three of
Whitman among the Bohemians by Edward Keyes Whitley( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For several years just before and just after his 1860 edition of Leaves of Grass appeared, Walt Whitman regularly frequented Pfaff's beer cellar in downtown Manhattan. The basement bar was the very center of mid-nineteenth-century American bohemian activity and was heavily patronized by writers, artists, musicians, actors, intellectuals, and radicals such as free-love advocate Henry Clapp, Jr., and Broadway succès de scandale Adah Isaacs Menken. Numerous creative and political ventures emerged from this environment, and at least two bohemian literary weeklies, The New-York Saturday Press and Vanity Fair, shared origins around the tables at Pfaff's. In this milieu, Whitman found sympathetic supporters of his poetic vision, professional connections, rivals, romantic partners, and close friends, and left a lasting impression on poet and critic Edmund Clarence Stedman, an erstwhile bohemian who later in the century emerged as a tastemaker of American poetry. Yet for many years, the bohemians associated with Pfaff's have served merely as minor background characters in Whitman scholarship. Whitman among the Bohemians corrects that by exploring in depth the connections Whitman made at Pfaff's and the impact they had on him, his poetry, and his career. In telling the story of these intersecting social and professional links that converged at Pfaff's in the late 1850s and early 1860s, the essays in this volume powerfully demonstrate just how much we can learn about Whitman and his work by viewing him within the context of American bohemia.

Troping the Elderly: Cultural Tensions, Senescence, and Sentimentalism in Antebellum Literature by Melissa R Kowalski( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While Fern, Hawthorne, and Douglass all embraced the aristocratic social model, they promoted different social contract criteria based on their societal positions. Fern and Melville also based their social contract principles on their personal experience, which resulted in different components, but both used their contracts to advocate for a democratic social model. Only Harriet Jacobs asserted that both the aristocratic and democratic models could coexist. She stressed that the form of the intergenerational social contract was not as important as its stability. Furthermore, she claimed that the problem with competing social models was the potential for individuals to misread the model in which they were operating. Jacobs underscored that absolute respect should not be the purpose of any social model, but that the elderly must be able to gain respect from some location within either social structure in order to achieve personal integrity
