Meet the Author


Horace Traubel (1858–1919) is best remembered for his extraordinary friendship with the poet Walt Whitman. Self-described as Whitman’s “spirit child,” Traubel visited the poet almost daily from the mid-1880s until Whitman’s death in 1892. After Whitman’s death, Traubel founded, edited, and published The Conservator, a journal dedicated to keeping Whitman’s works alive. He is also the author of Chants Communal (1904) and other books.
