When Walt Whitman self-published his Leaves of Grass in July 1855, he altered the course of literary history. One of the greatest masterpieces of American literature, it redefined the rules of poetry while describing the soul of the American character. Throughout his life, Whitman continuously revised, expanded, and republished Leaves of Grass, but the 1855 original marked Whitman's fresh and bold arrival, greeted by Ralph Waldo Emerson as "the beginning of a great career." This volume specially compiled for Penguin Drop Caps will also include a range of additional popular poems including selections from Calamus, Crossing Brooklyn Ferry, and Drum-Taps, as well as Whitman's 1855, 1856 and 1976 prefaces and "Democratic Vistas."
