Whitman and the Irish by Joann P Krieg( )

14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2,281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though Walt Whitman created no Irish characters in his early works of fiction, he did include the Irish as part of the democratic portrait of America that he drew in Leaves of Grass. In Whitman and the Irish, Joann Krieg convincingly establishes their importance within the larger framework of Whitman studies." "Focusing on geography rather than biography, Krieg traces Whitman's encounters with cities where the Irish formed a large portion of the population - New York City, Boston, Camden, and Dublin - or where, as in the case of Washington, D.C., he had exceptionally close Irish friends. She also provides a brief yet important historical summary of Ireland and its relationship with America."
A Whitman chronology by Joann P Krieg( )

15 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All Whitman scholars have encountered the frustration of trying to track down an event in Whitman's life & mdash;the last time he saw Peter Doyle, when he moved to his own home on Mickle Street in Camden, when he met Oscar Wilde. The records of these events in Whitman's long life are buried in seven volumes of his abundant correspondence, in nine volumes of his conversations with Horace Traubel, in nine volumes of his notebooks and manuscripts, and in countless writings produced by his friends and admirers. To fulfill a long-felt need for order among this embarrassment of riches, Joann K
Epidemics in the modern world by Joann P Krieg( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Epidemics and their effects on human populations have provided a literary theme extending from the Bible to Albert Camus's The Plague, yet this theme is significantly absent from the literature of the United States. Why? In this groundbreaking study, Joann P. Krieg uncovers the hidden concerns in the American psyche concerning epidemic diseases as she traces evidence of specific fears peculiar to the development of a national self-consciousness, especially with regard to nature in the New World. Beginning with the colonial era, ministers, politicians, and writers have downplayed, denied, or only obliquely alluded to such public miseries as smallpox, yellow fever, cholera, tuberculosis, and now AIDS, partly because of a fervent need to believe that only the old world of Europe is plague-ridden and corrupt. America, by contrast, is fresh and green, its people ever young and healthy. This attitude of denial affected even the greatest of American writers, some of whom - such as Charles Brockden Brown, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Henry David Thoreau - were themselves victims of epidemical diseases. Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edgar Allan Poe, and Walt Whitman broached the subject of epidemics, though often indirectly or with ambivalence. Later, Henry James, Willa Cather, and Katherine Anne Porter brought psychological awareness to the portrayal of dilemmas raised when Americans confronted epidemic illness at a personal level. Today, AIDS challenges the hope of many Americans that geographical distance will provide immunity. As Krieg demonstrates, new literature by Larry Kramer, Paul Monette, and Susan Sontag speaks with increasing daring about the once-taboo subject of epidemics and their impact on national myths as well as on individual lives
