By analyzing the three editions of Leaves of grass and selected other works published between 1850 and 1860, Bauerlein demonstrates that Whitman's efforts to employ a natural language in a new American poetry were ultimately frustrated by his realization that writing imposes questions of representation that undermine the drive for a language of spontaneity.
