by Walt Whitman
Leaves of Grass is a collection of Walt Whitman’s poetry, some sweet, some controversial. Coming in at close to 400 pages, the book saw as many as nine different published versions, some with a dramatic increase in the number of poems from prior releases.
For the project, I will be reading the 1891/2 “Deathbed Edition,” the last version released that included edits by Whitman. I obtained an electronic copy that contains the nearly 300 poems of the final edition. It’s 810 pages long, but as a book of poetry, there’s a lot of whitespace closing out each page.
