The Continuing Presence of Walt Whitman : The Life After the Life
The most protean and elusive of all American poets, Walt Whitman is everywhere and nowhere at once. An unavoidable presence, he still arouses anger, envy, love, and debate one hundred years after his death. To honor this anniversary, Robert Martin has invited the most invigorating and innovative of Whitman's new readers and critics to respond not to Whitman's death but to his continuing life as it has marked their own lives and writings. The eighteen essays gathered in this volume testify to the powerful multiple responses that Whitman continues to evoke.
