Book 4: Song of Myself, Walt Whitman
By Walt Whitman
Walt Whitman's visionary manifesto, visually reimagined.
Carefully culled to about one third of its original length, this version provides the perfect introduction to Whitman's most expansive and audacious poem. Combined with 27 illustrations, the book explores Whitman's own exuberant, witty, playful, transcendent theory of everything, beginning with "a spear of summer grass."
Only moderately well recognized in his time, Whitman is now regarded as the first and possibly greatest of American poets. As Harold Bloom said, "Walt Whitman is your imaginative father and mother, even if, like myself, you have never composed a line of verse."
Printed on beautiful matte paper, this petite gift book is perfect for poetry and art lovers alike.
