Leaves of Grass [9781847497550]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
First published in 1855 and extended by the author over the course of more than three decades, Leaves of Grass embodies Walt Whitman's lifetime ambition to create a new voice that could capture the spirit and vibrancy of the young American nation, while celebrating at the same time Nature without check with original energy . Famously written in free verse and brimming with sensuous imagery and an unbridled love of nature and life in all its forms, and containing celebrated poems such as the ebullient `Song of Myself' - described by Jay Parini as the greatest American poem ever written - and the elegiac `When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd', Leaves of Grass is not only the fi nest achievement of a highly unique poet, but a founding text for American literature and modern poetry.
AUTHOR: Considered one of the most influential poets in American literature and a pioneer of free verse, Walt Whitman (1819-92) was also a prolific writer of essays and articles. Controversial in its time, his sprawling collection Leaves of Grass is regarded as his magnum opus.
