Publisher's Summary

One of the great innovators in American letters, Walt Whitman created a daringly new kind of poetry that became a major force in world literature. Leaves of Grass is his masterpiece, written in a pure, uninhibited style, combining sensual and mystical sensibilities. Its bold, joyous voice, its expansive optimism, and its transcendental vision made it uniquely American.Because Walt Whitman kept adding poems throughout his life to his original Leaves of Grass, this "death-bed edition" of 1892 is the most complete version of his finished work.

What the Critics Say

"His first book of untitled free-verse poems would prove to be not only the single greatest poetic triumph to emerge from Transcendentalism but also the first collection of poetry uniquely American in vision, voice, form, and substance." (Masterpieces of World Literature)
