Description
Abraham Lincoln read it with approval, but Emily Dickinson described its bold language and themes as 'disgraceful.' Ralph Waldo Emerson found it 'the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet produced.' Published at the author's expense on July 4, 1855, Leaves of Grass inaugurated a new voice and style into American letters and gave expression to an optimistic, bombastic vision that took the nation as its subject. Unlike many other editions of Leaves of Grass, which reproduce various short, early versions, this Modern Library Paperback Classics 'Death-bed' edition presents everything Whitman wrote in its final form, and includes newly commissioned notes. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Description
Leaves of Grass is a timeless collection of poems and essays penned by influential nineteenth-century writer Walt Whitman. This profound compilation explores topics such as nature, mysticism, mortality, transcendentalism, and democracy. Inspired by personal experiences and observations, Whitman spent almost four decades piecing together the complete work, sharing societal ideals and epiphanies about life that still resonate with readers today. -- from Amazon.
