Leaves of Grass is a collection of poems by Walt Whitman originally published in 1855 at the poet's own expense. Criticized when first released for Whitman's use of free verse and his rather racy depictions of sexual love and the senses, Leaves of Grass is a celebration of the human form, the material world and nature.

As featured in AMC's Breaking Bad, given by Gale Boetticher to Walter White and discovered by Hank Schrader. "I celebrate myself, And what I assume you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. I loafe and invite my soul, I lean and loafe at my ease....observing a spear of summer grass." So begins Leaves of Grass, the first great American poem and indeed, to this day, the greatest and most essentially American poem in all our national literature. The publication of Leaves of Grass in July 1855 was a landmark event in literary history. Ralph Waldo Emerson judged the book "the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom America has yet contributed." Nothing like the volume had ever appeared before. Everything about it--the unusual jacket and title page, the exuberant preface, the twelve free-flowing, untitled poems embracing every realm of experience--was new. The 1855 edition broke new ground in its relaxed style, which prefigured free verse; in its sexual candor; in its images of racial bonding and democratic togetherness; and in the intensity of its affirmation of the sanctity of the physical world. This Anniversary Edition captures the typeface, design and layout of the original edition supervised by Whitman himself. Today's readers get a sense of the "ur-text" of Leaves of Grass, the first version of this historic volume, before Whitman made many revisions of both format and style. The volume also boasts an afterword by Whitman authority David Reynolds, in which he discusses the 1855 edition in its social and cultural contexts: its background, its reception, and its contributions to literary history. There is also an appendix containing the early responses to the volume, including Emerson's letter, Whitman's three self-reviews, and the twenty other known reviews published in various newspapers and magazines. This special volume will be a must-have keepsake for fans of Whitman and lovers of American poetry.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 3 +, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen (Institut furenglische Philologie), 7 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 1. Vorwort Dass das Thema der Liebe nicht nur in der Narrativik/Narrative, sondern auch in der Lyrik durch die Jahrhunderte hindurch ein strukturbildendes Element ist, durfte weithin bekannt sein. Dass das gleichgeschlechtliche Begehren oder aber Literatur mit homosexuellem Inhalt uber die Jahrhunderte hinweg von der Literaturwissenschaft geflissentlich ubersehen worden ist, ist ein Manko, das man erst in den letzten Jahrzehnten versucht zu revidieren. Wenngleich in diesem Jahrhundert diverse Ansatze versucht worden sind, Literatur auch unter diesem Aspekt genauer zu betrachten, gelang der Durchbruch erst in den letzen beiden Jahrzehnten. Wahrend verschiedene Literaturwissenschaftler dem Thema des gleichgeschlechtlichen Begehrens in ihren Untersuchungen nur ein paar Fussnoten einraumten, bilden andere das Thema der Homosexualitat expressis verbis in sehr fundierten und extensiven Arbeiten ab. In der vorliegenden Arbeit soll es primar darum gehen, die verschiedenen Thematisierungsmoglichkeiten vom Themenkomplex Homosexualitat" bei drei Lyrikern genauer zu beleuchten, die sich diesem Thema auf sehr unterschiedliche Art und Weise nahern. Anhand ausgewahlter Passagen aus Gedichten von Walt Whitman, Adrienne Rich und Thom Gunn wird aufgezeigt, wie diese sich jeweils dem Thema auf ihre individuelle Art und Weise nahern. Selbstverstandlich konnen nur ausgesuchte Textpassagen als Beispiele herangenommen werden, da eine andere Vorgehensweise den Rahmen dieser Arbeit zweifelsohne sprengen wurde. Aus den jeweiligen Gedichtzyklen werden vorzugsweise jene Stellen herausgesucht, die sich speziell mit dem Thema der Homosexualitat beschaftigen und somit als Argumentationsgrundlage dienen. Diese Arbeit hat also nicht den Anspruch, dem gesamten Oeuvre der behandelten

Was Walt Whitman--celebrated poet of freedom and democracy--a determinist at heart? A close study of Leaves of Grass shows that Whitman consistently acknowledges the inevitability of all things. As John McDonald argues, this seeming contradiction lies at the heart of Whitman's poetry, a fact continually overlooked in the more than 100 years that critics have written about the poet and his magnum opus. This volume contains an extensive study of Walt Whitman's poetry that explores both Whitman's guiding philosophy and its uses to unlock meaning within Leaves of Grass. Beginning with a detailed explanation of determinism, the author examines Whitman's use of indirection, which the poet referred to at times as a game played to evade the reader's comprehension. The work seeks to define a philosophy which was, in the author's opinion, the most significant influence in Whitman's thought and in his art. Various poems are examined in depth, including Song of Myself, Passage to India and the particularly significant With Antecedents. Gathered here will be evidence from Whitman's poems and prose and from his notes and quoted remarks, enough evidence to show beyond doubt that determinism was indeed his most significant influence. An innovative look at one of America's greatest poets.
