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. "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).
