A book elected for its prolific historical and educational value, this text is an immensely important piece of literature that will appeal to those with an interest in the political past of America and constitutes a worthy addition to any bookshelf.

    Walt Whitman

    I mean, what can you say? It's Walt Whitman. A thought-provoking exploration into words and language, but this "story" consists of what would have become lecture notes had Whitman ever even gotten that far with them. Not sure how much of the apparent typos can be blamed on that, and how many are transcription errors. There seems to be some problems with the layout of the pages, too.
