An examination of the figure of the poet that dominates Whitman's early editions. Arguing that the poet of "Leaves of Grass" owes his redemptive features to the apostrophes that seem to produce him, it draws on the work of Freud, Lacan, Kristeva and Derrida in order to account for the peculiar fascination this figure has exerted on Whitman's audience.
