Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Grand but intimate, earthy but also dreamy."  —Observer

"The great unrhymed, long-lined, self-celebratory sensation of the 1850s."  —Los Angeles Times

EBOOK COMMENTARY
   • "Whitman had a fluid personality that made him able to "merge" invisibly, and with great empathy, with the images of other people and events that lodged in his mind... unprecedented assembling of rhythm, sound, language and images." —New York Times

I first heard about this book when I was reading "Paper Towns" by John Green. Instantly I knew I had to buy it--I mean if John Green writed about it it has to he good, right? I was not disapointed. I highly recommend this book to poetry fanatics. Happy Reading, Z Hawthorn
