Overview

Walt Whitman (1819-1892) is widely considered to be the greatest and most influential of all American poets. LEAVES OF GRASS, Whitman's sole book published at his own expense, represents almost the entirety of his poetical output. The first edition of LEAVES OF GRASS, which he would continue to revise over the course of his life expanding and rewriting it until the year of his death, appeared in 1855. This volume endeavors to recreate that edition as much as an e-book's virtual typesetting will allow.

About the Author

Walt Whitman (1819-1892) is widely considered to be the greatest and most influential of all American poets. Heralding and employing a new style of poetry during his time, free-verse, he created a poetry he envisioned as uniquely American. His sole volume of poems, LEAVES OF GRASS, was largely ignored during his lifetime but would go on to influence poetry around the world in the 20th century and beyond.
