For the first time, "Walt Whitman s Selected Journalism" thematically and chronologically organizes a compelling selection of Whitman s journalism from the late 1830s to the Civil War. It includes writings from the poet s first immersion into the burgeoning democratic culture of antebellum America to the war that transformed both the poet and the nation. "Walt Whitman s Selected Journalism" covers Whitman s early years as a part-time editorialist and ambivalent schoolteacher between 1838 and 1841. After 1841, it follows his work as a dedicated full-time newspaperman and editor, most prominently at the "New York Aurora" and the "Brooklyn Daily Eagle" between 1842 and 1848. After 1848 and up to the Civil War, Whitman s journalism shows his slow transformation from daily newspaper editor to poet."

American literature and culture are inconceivable without the towering presence of Walt Whitman. Expansive, ecstatic, original in ways that continue to startle and to elicit new discoveries, Whitman's poetry is a testament to the surging energies of 19th-century America and a monument to the transforming power of literary genius. His incantatory rhythms, revolutionary sense of Eros, and generous, all-embracing vision invite renewed wonder at each reading. Although he has been a defining influence for many poets -- Garcia Lorca, Fernando Pessoa, Robinson Jeffers and Allen Ginsberg -- his style is ultimately inimitable, and his achievement unsurpassed in American poetry. "One always wants to start out fresh with Walt Whitman," writes Harold Bloom in his introduction, "and read him as though he never has been read before." In a selection that ranges from early notebook fragments and the complete "Song of Myself" to the valedictory "Good-bye My Fancy!," Bloom has chosen 47 works to represent "the principal writer that America -- North, Central, or South -- has brought to us."

The poetry of Walt Whitman is the cornerstone of modern American verse. He was America's first truly great poet and his influence is still evident today. The first edition of Whitman's Leaves of Grass, published in 1855, was a revolutionary manifesto declaring America's independence from European cultural domination. His rhapsodic free verse broke radically with poetic, tradition: it was poetry about America, its democracy, its people, and its hopes. It was uniquely American without apology—brash, proud, optimistic, and filled with the bustling energy of the new and growing nation. This collection brings together Whitman's greatest and most famous poems spanning the whole of his career. From the groundbreaking first edition of Leaves of Grass are seven poems, including "Song of Myself" and "I Sing the Body Electric." From later editions there are such masterpieces as "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry," "Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking," and "I Hear America Singing." Also included is Whitman's great cycle of Civil War Poems, Drum-Taps, which he wrote in the months when he was ministering to the wounded in battlefield hospitals. Concluding this collection is one of his last poems, "Good-bye My Fancy!"—his touching farewell to his muse, his life, and his readers. More than one hundred years after his death, Walt Whitman's poetry has become part of the American heritage. It is a visionary which speaks as aptly to readers today as it will to future generations. As he says in "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry," "others...look back on me because I look'd forward to them." Whitman's poetry is a link that connects all Americans—past, present, and future. This book features a deluxe cover, ribbon marker, top stain, and decorative endpaper with a nameplate.

I contain multitudes, Walt Whitman says in his great poem Song of Myself, and this multitudinousness, expressed with a genius for language and an imaginative energy as powerful as that possessed by any writer, has come to define the inner meaning - the mystic idea - of the American experience. Though he himself lived most of his life in and around New York City, Whitman's poetry encompassed the sweep of a continent.

Walt Whitman, Where the Future Becomes Present invigorates Whitman studies by garnering insights from a diverse group of writers and intellectuals. Writing from the perspectives of art history, political theory, creative writing, and literary criticism, the contributors place Whitman in the center of both world literature and American public life. The volume is especially notable for being the best example yet published of what the editors call the New Textuality in Whitman studies, an emergent mode of criticism that focuses on the different editions of Whitman’s poems as independent works of art.
