Leaves of Grass, By Walt Whitman


Leaves of Grass, By Walt Whitman


“To The States or any one of them, or any city of

The States,

Resist much, obey little.

Once unquestioning obedience, once fully enslaved,

No nation, state, city of this earth,

Ever afterward resumes its liberty.”


WALT WHITMAN (1819-1892), one of the greatest authors of the nineteenth century, transformed forever the art of poetry.

 He is considered by many to be the quintessential American poet.

 His subversive vitality and sexual flare continues to exert a profound influence to this day. His Leaves Of Grass is a landmark of American literature.

 This uncensored new 21st Century edition of Leaves Of Grass is an unambiguously clear-eyed version of Walt Whitman’s anthem to freedom and independence.
