Author(s): 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 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 an incredible influence on his fellow countrymen. The poems included in this work will take you on a whirlwind tour of emotions as Whitman whisks you from celebrations of sexuality to his inspirational accounts of society.
