"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Walt Whitman (1819-1892) is considered to be one of the greatest American poets. His collection of twelve poems, Leaves of Grass, was first published in 1855 and initially shocked the American public with its unfamiliar form and democratic stance. He was particularly in the public eye in his last nineteen years of life when English writers such as William Rossetti and Robert Stevenson contended that Americans did not fully appreciate him.

Summary: After reading Leaves of Grass , Robert Louis Stevenson called it "a book which tumbled the world upside down for me." For many others, too, from Whitman's day to ours, this book has come as an epochal experience, as flushed with life and poetic quality now as then. Mark Van Doren's Portable Walt Whitman includes one hundred poems from Leaves of Grass , as well as two of Whitman's prose works in their entirety, Democratic Vistas and his wonderfully rambling reminiscences, Specimen Days .
