An exciting addition to Everyman's Library: a new series of small, handsome hardcover volumes, devoted to the world's classic poets. Our books have twice as many pages as Bloomsbury Classics' 128pp and cost 7. 99 against Bloomsbury's 9. 99. The binding, paper and production is visibly superior in every way to that of Bloomsbury.

The major male poet of nineteenth-century America (his female counterpart is Emily Dickinson), Whitman is the poet of grand passions great open spaces, lofty mourning and male love. Written in free metres, his verse ranges across every kind of subject in a characteristically exalted mood. This volume includes a wide selection from every period of Whitman's creative career, including many poems from the celebrated LEAVES OF GRASS.
