“Oh Captain! My Captain! our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won.”

– Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

 

Walt Whitman is among the most influential poets in the American canon and is often called the father of free verse. His work, especially “Leaves of Grass”, was very controversial in its time due to its contents containing overt sexuality.

 

Printed in 1900 by McKay, this new edition was printed with all of Whitman’s final changes. It is a decorative display piece that features a three-page facsimile autobiographical note, as well as four other illustrated plates throughout. Some of the notable poems contained in this collection include:

  • I sing the Body Electric
  • A Woman Waits for Me
  • The Ship Starting
  • Laws for Creations
  • Children of Adam
  • Sands at Seventy
  • Good-bye My Fancy
