Savor the glorious, ebullient language of a vital American poet.
Leaves of Grass is Walt Whitman’s monumental poetry collection, first published in 1855, which he revised and expanded throughout his lifetime. It was ground-breaking in its subject matter and in its direct, unembellished style. Whitman wrote about the United States and its people, its revolutionary spirit, and about democracy. He wrote openly about the body and about desire in a way that defied convention and which paved the way for a new kind of poetry.
This handy collection, taken from the final version—the Deathbed edition—includes his most famous poems, such as "Song of Myself" and "I Sing the Body Electric," and is part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library. Beautifully crafted with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers, these pocket-sized classics make perfect gifts that any book lover will treasure.
