"Of Life immense in passion, pulse, and power, Cheerful, for freest action form'd under the laws divine, The Modern Man I sing."                         -- from Leaves of Grass   The newest in our series of bold-faced thoughts on classic works!  This pocket-size, volume offers an innovative take on a beloved American masterpiece: the first (1855) edition of Leaves of Grass, which consisted of an introduction by Whitman and merely twelve untitled poems.  Though it has now passed its 155th anniversary, Walt Whitman's powerful poetry continues to inspire with its rich language, all-embracing populism, and boundless spirit. Whitman took it upon himself to establish a bold, sensual, new literary tradition that was distinctly American--and consciously set out to be at once the quintessential American poet and the voice of the common man. Leaves of Grass remains an enduring touchstone for writers everywhere, and for anyone who wants to get in touch with his or her own creative spirit.  In addition to the text, this compact volume features highlighted passages, an introduction that relates the poems to today's perspective, and reflective writing exercises (with lined pages to write on).… (mer)

If you haven't read it yet, read it! It is composed of many assortments of poems, all from the life of Whitman and pertaining to nature. Very beautiful and an eye-opener. ( )

Ruminative verse in thought... Whitman is always a pleasure to read ( )
  sevster | May 27, 2014 |
This book is an inspiration to all writers. Whitman's subject matter is based on nature, work, spirituality, war, and the experience of reading a writing. And the style is free-verse. Powerful, for high school.

The original edition of Leaves of Grass had just 95 pages
of poetry, and a lengthy introduction. The only titles were “Leaves
of Grass” or a marker, indicating a new poem. The original book
listed no author, with a small engraving of himself in a loose open
shirt and tipped hat, one hand on hip, the other in his pocket (to
“loafe” at that time meant to be seen idling stylishly about town).
The engraving by Samuel Hollyer was based on a photo by Gabriel
Harrison (a common printing conversion by skilled professionals
in the pre-digital age).
(from the America essay)
America does not repel the past or what it has produced
under its forms or amid other politics or the idea of castes or
the old religions … accepts the lesson with calmness … is not
so impatient as has been supposed that the slough still sticks to
opinions and manners and literature while the life which served
its requirements has passed into the new life of the new forms
… perceives that the corpse is slowly borne from the eating and
sleeping rooms of the house … perceives that it waits a little while
in the door … that it was fittest for its days … that its action has
descended to the stalwart and wellshaped heir who approaches …
and that he shall be fittest for his days.

Whitman significantly revised Leaves of Grass over his lifetime.  This represents those works containing the first edition, originally published in 1855 and consisting of only 12 unnamed poems.

Please do not combine with other editions, particularly the "Deathbed edition", which contains over 400 poems.
