HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics.

I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey work of the stars...

First published in 1855, and edited, revised and expanded over thirty years, `Leaves of Grass' has become one of the most celebrated poetry collections in the history of American literature. A master of free verse, Walt Whitman captures the true spirit of his homeland and its people through his poetry. He explores a wide range of themes, encompassing American identity and cultural values, democracy, nature and the mysteries of the human spirit.

Featuring the poems of the original 1855 edition, `Leaves of Grass' remains an influential work within the American literary tradition, studied and treasured around the world.

“What a man!”

An American classic but very relevant today.
I bought it for my son of 13. He will have his life to read it, enjoy it and learn to live a better life from it.
To read!
