MEDIA REVIEWS

""A Whitman Chronology" lets facts speak for themselves, making it perhaps the most immediately useful biography yet produced."-"Walt Whitman Quarterly Review"


""A Whitman Chronology" lets facts speak for themselves, making it perhaps the most immediately useful biography yet produced."--"Walt Whitman Quarterly Review"


In this compendium, Krieg (Hofstra Univ.), editor of "Walt Whitman: Here and Now" (1985), captures the 'sprawling' information on Whitman's private and public life. She subdues this sprawl in a rational, well-organized guide for the scholar and general reader that offers a calendar of selected, pertinent events; points out areas of major critical and scholarly disagreement; and refers the reader to sources for further study. Thumbnail notes open each of the eight chronologically arranged sections. Terse quotes from Whitman's work hallmark each section. A list of significant dates, biographical notes on significant persons, and the requisite works cited and index provide strong support for the text. Although Krieg strove for balance in selecting from the daunting amount of information on Whitman, the chronology in the final analysis is a subjective rendering. Nevertheless, it remains a good, practical guide to the life and works of one of literature's most complicated artists. Every Whitman scholar will want this work, and it will be useful for upper-division undergraduates and graduate students."--"Choice"
