Open Book Club: "Song of Myself and other poems by Walt Whitman"

Walt Whitman was deeply interested in the American language as it was emerging in his time. In this book, former Poet Laureate of the United States Robert Hass walks us through Whitman's "Song of Myself"—one of the greatest poems in American literature. Much is revealed about the words Whitman chose in 1855—their inflections, meanings, and native usages we wouldn't otherwise know.
