Leaves of Grass
This richly illustrated edition presents a selection of Whitman's greatest and most beautiful lyrics, from sprawling masterpieces like "Song of Myself" to little-known gems like "Fancies at Navesink." With poems drawn from each of the "clusters" with which Whitman brought structure and coherence to his work, this volume follows the ordering established by the poet for the so-called "Death-Bed Edition" (1891-92) of Leaves of Grass. Also included are four of Whitman's superbly poetic essays, among them the landmark preface to the first edition of Leaves of Grass. Enhanced by treasures from the archives of the New York Public Library, including handwritten poems and letters and a stunning array of portraits and illustrations, this Collector's Edition allows readers a rare opportunity to experience the poet and his world.
