9780312267902: Walt Whitman: Selected Poems 1855-1892

A century after his death, Whitman is still celebrated as America's greatest poet. In this startling new edition of his work, Whitman biographer Gary Schmidgall presents over two hundred poems in their original pristine form, in the chronological order in which they were written, with Whitman's original line breaks and punctuation. Included in this volume are facsimilies of Whitman's original manuscripts, contemporary-- and generally blistering-- reviews of Whitman's poetry (not surprisingly Henry James hated it), and early pre-Leaves of Grass poems that return us to the physical Whitman, rejoicing-- sometimes graphically-- in homoerotic love.

Unlike the many other available editions, all drawn from the final authorized or "deathbed" Leaves of Grass, this collection focuses on the exuberant poems Whitman wrote during the creative and sexual prime of his life, roughly between 1853 and 1860. These poems are faithfully presented as Whitman first gave them to the world-- fearless, explicit, and uncompromised-- before he transformed himself into America's respectable, mainstream Good Gray Poet through thirty years of revision, self-censorship, and suppression.

Whitman admitted that his later poetry lacked the "ecstasy of statement" of his early verse. Revealing that ecstasy for the first time, this edition makes possible a major reappraisal of our nation's first great poet.

From the Publisher:

Early Reviews for Walt Whitman's LEAVES OF GRASS:

"Mr. Whitman sees nothing vulgar in that which is commonly regarded as the grossest obscenity; rejects the laws of conventionality so completely as to become repulsive; gloats over coarse images with the gusto of a Rabelais." --The New York Times (1860)

"We ought to rejoice greatly in Walt Whitman....You can't confound him with the other inhabitants of Brooklyn or New York. How they must shudder when they read him! He is awfully good." --Henry David Thoreau (1856)

"We shall not aid in extending the sale of this intensely vulgar, nay absolutely beastly book by telling our readers where it may be purchased." --Frank Leslie's Illustrated Paper (1856)

"Walt Whitman, the world...needed a man who dared speak out his strong, honest thoughts in the face of pusillanimous, toadying, republican aristocracy...it needed a large-hearted, untainted, self-reliant, fearless son of the Stars and Stripes." --Fanny Fern (1856)

"Art requires, above all things, a suppression of one's self, a subordination of one's self to an idea. This will never do....We find art, measure, grace, sense sneered at on every page." --Henry James (1865)

"[Whitman] is the herald to a new era. As a man he is the precursor of a fresh type. He is a factor in the heroic and spiritual evolution of the human being." --Oscar Wilde (1889)

About the Author:

Gary Schmidgall is the author of several studies of Shakespeare and biographies of Oscar Wilde and Walt Whitman. He has been a fellow of the American Council of Learned Societies and the Mellon and Guggenheim Foundations.
