Leaves of Grass Summary

Leaves of Grass: A Norton Critical Edition by Walt Whitman

Following the texts is an album of portraits of Whitman, as well as Whitman on His Art, a collection of Whitman's statements about his role as a poet taken from his notebooks, letters, conversations, and newspaper articles.

While continuing to provide leading commentary on Whitman by major twentieth-century poets and critics, among them D. H. Lawrence, William Carlos Williams, and Randall Jarrell, this revised edition adds important commentary by Whitman contemporaries Henry David Thoreau, Fanny Fern, Henry James, and Oscar Wilde, among others. An entirely new section of recent criticism includes six essays--by David S. Reynolds, Karen Sanchez-Eppler, John Irwin, Allen Grossman, Betsy Erkkila, and Michael Moon--that reflect both the continuing historicist mainstream of Whitman literary interpretation and influential recent work in gender and sexuality studies.

The volume also includes a Chronology, a Selected Bibliography, and an Index of Titles.
