From the Back Cover:

The intention of this book remains the same as before: to introduce Whitman to those who feel the need of such a formal meeting. As an introduction, the book has become something of both an end and a beginning. It is an end in that it has assimilated much of the mountain of material, scholarly and critical, that has accumulated about Whitman through the years.
