Walt Whitman: Selected Poems
Phoenix Poetry, 2003 - 135 Seiten
I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.
--From Song of Myself
Celebrate the poetry of one of America's greatest writers. Best known for his anthology Leaves of Grass, Walt Whitman truly captured the country's spirit as it began to mature; all the issues that concerned this growing democracy--from immigration and race to the plight of working men and women--became the subject of his poems. Among the masterpieces represented here are There Was a Child Went Forth; Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking; I Sing the Body Electric; and A Clear Midnight.
