"The major male poet of nineteenth-century America (his female counterpart is Emily Dickinson), Whitman is the poet of grand passions great open spaces, lofty mourning and male love. Written in free metres, his verse ranges across every kind of subject in a characteristically exalted mood. This volume includes a wide selection from every period of Whitman's creative career, including many poems from the celebrated LEAVES OF GRASS."
