Walt Whitman: Leaves of Grass


Walt Whitman: Leaves of Grass


Leaves Of Grass is Walt Whitman’s rare and genuine masterpiece; an exhilarating work of artistry deserving of the label in a thousand different ways.  It is a landmark of American literature.

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.

“This uncensored new edition of Leaves Of Grass is quite simply the most unambiguously clear-eyed version of Walt Whitman’s anthem to bisexuality and independence ever published…”
—Daniel Joyce
