    The first edition of "Leaves of Grass" had received little attention until a positive review appeared, in fact written by Walt Whitman himself. Described by Emily Dickinson as "disgraceful" and by Emerson as "the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America had yet contributed to world literature", the book went on to provoke strong reactions from its readers. It is not only the allusions to sex and physiology that disturbed Whitman's critics but also his departure from the rules of conventional poetry. He broke ... Show more

It's a must. There it is.

by dekesolomon on Oct 31, 2009

You may like Walt Whitman or you may not, but you can't claim to know American literature if you've never read Whitman. There it is. Get used to it. If it helps any, remember: you only have to do it once. Wear a bib, you won't get any on ya!

Wonderful

by Rosie1954 on Jul 2, 2007

One should slowly drink in Whitman, take your time and savour it like a fine aged wine. I most enjoy The Body Electric among his many great works, all in one volume. I thought how odd that he appeared such a rugged, almost cowboy like, tough exterior of a man, to write such passionate, deep, and profusely beautiful poetry. Awww we are not what we look like. Leaves of Grass stands alone as an exceptional and wonderful piece of work.
