Leaves of grass by Walt Whitman( Book )

8 editions published between 1855 and 1882 in English and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abraham Lincoln read it with approval, but Emily Dickinson described its bold language and themes as "disgraceful." Ralph Waldo Emerson found it "the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet produced." Published at the author's expense on July 4, 1855, Leaves of Grass inaugurated a new voice and style into American letters and gave expression to an optimistic, bombastic vision that took the nation as its subject. Unlike many other editions of Leaves of Grass, which reproduce various short, early versions, this Modern Library Paperback Classics "Death-bed" edition presents everything Whitman wrote in its final form, and includes newly commissioned notes.

"I loved this book. It's an inexpensive collection of Walt Whitman poems, letters, and essays that is well worth your time {u2026} this book is worth purchasing and perusing due to its historical value of ruminations on American life." {u2014} Old Musty Books Compiled when the great poet was 70 years old, November Boughs offers verse and prose reminiscences of a singular American life. Walt Whitman's reflections begin with the essay "A Backward Glance O'er Travel'd Roads," in which he discusses the genesis of his most famous and controversial book, Leaves of Grass. A selection of poetry titled "Sands at Seventy" is followed by a series of essays and recollections that include "Slang in America," "What Lurks Behind Shakespeare's Historical Plays," "The Old Bowery," and notes on the life of the Quaker abolitionist Elias Hicks, whose body {u2014} it was rumored {u2014} he and a youthful group of friends once attempted to exhume. This affordable, high-quality edition of a rare book of poetry and prose provides a greater context for the interpretation of Whitman's other works.
