On Whitman, Paperback / softback Book

Description

In this book, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet C. K. Williams sets aside the mass of biography and literary criticism that has accumulated around Walt Whitman and attempts to go back to Leaves of Grass as he first encountered it--to explore why Whitman's epic "continues to inspire and sometimes daunt" him.

The result is a personal reassessment and appreciation of one master poet by another, as well as an unconventional and brilliant introduction to Whitman.

Beautifully written and rich with insight, this is a book that refreshes our ability to see Whitman in all his power.
