Overview

Most remembered for his seminal poetic work Leaves of Grass, a different side of the great Walt Whitman is seen in this scarce text: the keen American educationalist. This book contains more than a hundred paragraphs, book reviews, and articles on the state of New York’s educational system, written by Whitman while he was a reporter and editor for the Brooklyn Evening Star and the Brooklyn Daily Eagle from 1845 to 1848. These fascinating observations and recommendations provide an insight into Whitman’s passion for educational reform, constituting a must-read for both admirers of the great poet’s writing and those interested in the history of the American Education system. Born in Huntington, Long Island, Walter Whitman was an American essayist, journalist, and poet, having also worked as a teacher, government clerk, and as a voluntary nurse during the American Civil War. This rare text was originally published in 1950 and is proudly republished here with a new introductory biography of the author.
