Overview

There are many reasons to read Whitman, and for most readers wishing to read much of Whitman's work, investing in a good edition of Leaves of Grass is highly recommended. But we believe many readers of Whitman will find this smaller edition useful even if they possess Leaves. Sometimes gay readers and scholars have occasion to seek out the homoerotic passages of Whitman, whether to read for the pure pleasure of the experience or for scholarship. This need has been problematic in the past because Leaves is a huge volume to read through to find what one is seeking, shorter editions of "selected" Whitman poems are generally more apt to omit his homoerotic material than to include it (and certainly do not highlight it), and if one turns only to his "Calamus" section, his most homoerotic "chapter," one misses out on a great deal more. This volume seeks to give readers and scholars a single source to consult when the aim is to read Whitman's homoerotic verse.
