About the Authors
  • Walt Whitman is a poet of contexts. His poetic practice was one of observing, absorbing, and then reflecting the world around him. Walt Whitman in Context provides brief, provocative explorations of thirty-eight different contexts - geographic, literary, cultural, and political - through which to engage Whitman's life and work. Written by distinguished scholars of Whitman and nineteenth-century American literature and culture, this collection synthesizes scholarly and historical sources and brings together new readings and original research.

    • Explores thirty-eight different contexts in which to engage Whitman's work
    • Draws on such recent critical approaches as ecocriticism, gender and sexuality studies, the history of the book, and print culture
    • Essays are written by pre-eminent and emerging Whitman scholars
