Whitman himself made such comparisons, going so far as to use biblical verse as a model for his own. So it''s only appropriate that artist and illustrator Allen Crawford has chosen to illuminate-like medieval monks with their own holy scriptures-Whitman''s masterpiece and the core of his poetic vision, "Song of Myself." Crawford has turned the original 60-page poem from Whitman''s 1855 edition into a sprawling 234-page work of art. The handwritten text and illustrations intermingle in a way that''s both surprising and wholly in tune with the spirit of the poem-they''re exuberant, rough, and wild. Whitman Illuminated: Song of Myself is a sensational reading experience, an artifact in its own right, and a masterful tribute to the Good Gray Poet.
