about

This vintage book contains Walt Whitman's seminal collection of poetry, "Leaves of Grass". Including various readings, together with first drafts of certain poems, rejected passages, and poems that were excluded from later editions, this book is highly recommended for fans of Whitman's work. It would make for a worthy addition to any poetic collection. The verses include: "Sail out for Good, Eidólon Yacht!", "Lingering Last Drops", "Good-Bye My Fancy", "On, On the Same, Ye Jocund Twain!", "My 71st Year", "Apparitions", "The Pallid Wreath", "An Ended Day", "Old Age's Ship and Crafty's Death", "To the Pending Year", etcetera. Walter "Walt" Whitman (1819 - 1892), was a celebrated American poet, essayist and journalist. He is one of the most influential poets in American literature, and is often referred to as the father of free verse. His writings were extremely controversial in his time, a statement that is especially true for "Leaves of Grass"; considered to be obscenely sexual when first published. Many texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
