Overview

It was with this first version of 'Song of Myself,' from the 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass, that Whitman first made himself known to the world. Readers familiar with the later, revised editions will find this first version new, surprising, and often superior to the revisions, and exhilarating in the freshness of its vision.

Proclaimed as the nation's first "poet of democracy," Whitman reached out to common readers and opposed censorship with his overt celebrations of sexuality.

One of 60 low-priced classic texts published to celebrate Penguin's 60th anniversary. All the titles are extracts from "Penguin Classics" titles."Song of Myself", the opening poem from "Leaves of Grass", is a visionary poem that celebrates the miracle of nature and human life.

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
