The Poetry of Walt Whitman by Walt Whitman

| /

Revered as one of the most influential American poets of all time, Walt Whitman used his own money to publish his first collection of poetry in a slim volume called Leaves of Grass. Over the following years, it became his life's work as he continuously revised and expanded it.

Freed from the restraints of tradition, Whitman's exuberance shines through every poem. His uplifting verses and powerful language provide a stunning experience unmatched by his contemporaries, and exercised and incredible influence on his fellow countrymen. The poems selected here take you on a whirlwind tour of emotions as he whisks you from celebrations of sexuality to his inspirational accounts of society.
