Summary

Walt Whitman was indeed a wild soul. His poetry expresses an earthy sensuality out of sync with the industrial times he lived in. His love for wild nature and for the sensual experiences of life is heard in every poem. Editor, Howard Nelson, provides an insightful introduction, shedding light on Walt Whitman's life. This carefully selected collection of poems alongside the beauty of Roderick MacIver's watercolor art creates a grand tribute to this beautiful soul.
