The Correspondence

Rate this:
Among the more than one hundred fifty letters collected in this volume are numerous correspondences concerning WhitmanOCOs Civil War years, including a letter sending John Hay, the personal secretary to Abraham Lincoln, a manuscript copy of OC O Captain, My Captain OCO Additional letters address various aspects of the production of Leaves of Grass, the most notable being an extensive correspondence surrounding the Deathbed Edition, gathered by WhitmanOCOs friend Horace Traubel, and reproduced here for the first time. Most significantly, this volume at last incorporates WhitmanOCOs early letters to Abraham Paul Leech, first published by Arthur Golden in American Literature in 1986. The revelations contained in these letters must be considered among the most important discoveries about WhitmanOCOs life made during the last half of the twentieth century."
