Synopsis: In early July, 1855, Walt Whitman's self-published "Leaves of Grass" revolutionised American poetry by declaring its independence from traditional poetic models, themes and concepts of the poet's calling. The seven editions of "Leaves of Grass" published between 1855 and 1881 defined the modern poetic voice for America and the world. Joel Myerson's bibliography documents the numerous editions, reprintings and rearrangements of Whitman's lifetime project - intricacies that have occupied many scholarly sleuths - as well as miscellaneous pieces; individually published poems, magazine and newspaper articles, broadsides, circulars, advertisements and other prose works. The value of the work is enhanced by an index showing the publication history of the poems in "Leaves of Grass" and a bibliography of works about America's most celebrated book of poetry.
