Editorial Reviews

Review

“Generations of readers have turned to Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass for its nature poetry. Now Howard Nelson has given us, in one slim volume, the best of Whitman’s nature writing. Nelson’s superb selection includes prose and poetry, both soaring rhetoric (‘I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars’) and a quietly delightful diary entry about an ‘Adamic air-bath’ on the banks of Timber Creek. Rod MacIver’s fresh, deft watercolors are a perfect match for Whitman’s ‘spontaneous me.’” 
—Michael Robertson, author of Worshipping Walt: The Whitman Disciples

About the Author

Walt Whitman, generally considered the most important American poet of the nineteenth century, was born on May 31, 1819, in West Hills, Long Island, and died in 1892 at age 72. Editor Howard Nelson is a professor of English at Cayuga Community College and has been awarded Chancellor’s Awards from the State University of New York for teaching, scholarship, and creative activities. A widely published poet, he has also written several criticisms of American poetry, including Robert Bly: An Introduction to the Poetry and On the Poetry of Galway Kinnell: The Wages of Dying. A contributing editor to The Hollins Critic and a contributor to the Walt Whitman Encyclopedia and The Walt Whitman Companion, Nelson reads his poetry and lectures on Whitman and other American writers regularly. He lives in Moravia, NY. Artist Roderick MacIver lives in the Adirondack Mountains, NY.

Format: Paperback
Good choices of Whitman's writings with beautiful illustrations to enhance his poetry. My only disappointment was that the paintings were in black and white.
