The essays collected here, written for this volume by an international team of distinguished Whitman scholars, examine a variety of issues in Whitman's life and art. Their varying approaches mirror the diversity of contemporary scholarship and the breadth of target that Whitman affords for such examination. The authors of these essays address a wide range of issues befitting a poet of his stature and ambiguity: Whitman and photography, Whitman and feminist scholarship, Whitman and modernism, Whitman and the poetics of address, Whitman and the poetics of present participles, Whitman and Borges, Whitman and Isadora Duncan, Whitman and the Civil War, Whitman and the politics of his era, and Whitman and the changing nature of his style in his later years. Addressed to an audience of students and general readers and written in a nontechnical prose designed to promote accessibility to the study of Whitman, this volume includes a chronology of Whitman's life and suggestions for further reading.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The editor of this handsome volume succeeds greatly in assembling a group of new essays that indicates in important and memorable ways the rich variety--mutitudes--of responses our still-revolutionary poet elicits from his readers." Nineteeth-Century Literature
"This anthology of ten essays suggests the vitality and variety of critical responses to Whitman today, or, as Ezra Greenspan writes in his introduction, how Whitman 'has again become one of the most current figures in American literary criticism.'"
."..this is an excellent companion to Whitman and his poetry. It is not only valuable for the scholar looking to supplement an already informed approach to Whitman, but it serves the reader new to Whitman equally well, revealing aspects of Whitman's writing, and of Whitman's life and influence, that would not be readily apparent on a first or second reading." colin A. Clarke, American Studies International
