      Description

      An unabridged collection of classic verse speaking profoundly into the lives of readers today.

      Leaves of Grass, featuring beloved poems such as “Oh Captain! My Captain!” and “Song of Myself,” was met with both scathing criticism and glowing praise when it was originally published in 1855. Arguably the best historical commentator of the nineteenth century, Walt Whitman continues to inspire readers today.

      The most inclusive writer one might ever come across, Whitman wrote of laborers, mechanics, soldiers, mothers, carpenters, and prostitutes; this inclusivity stirred up controversy and earned bans, but also gained the attention of other literary greats like Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau.

      At a time when conversations concerning politics, race, class, and sexuality are at an all time high, Leaves of Grass which addresses the experience of multitudes, will resonate with readers today perhaps even more profoundly than in Whitman’s own time.

      Born in 1819, Walt Whitman became one of America’s best-known poets before his death in 1892. Often called the “father of free verse,” Whitman spent much of his life revising and augmenting his “special and entire self-chosen poetic utterance,” Leaves of Grass.
