Days with Walt Whitman

(5 stars; 4 reviews)

"Days with Walt Whitman" is a contemplative summary of the life of Walt Whitman and the making of the poet, by one of his followers. Edward Carpenter collected a half dozen essays he had written about different aspects of the American poet's work and habits. The essays have an ecstatic but grounded style, elevating Whitman to immortality, and showcasing Carpenter's familiarity with ancient Sanskrit texts. - Summary by Czandra (3 hr 11 min)

More significant yet undeservedly obscure North American literature graced us by czandra. Thank you.
