I haven't read this slowly for years and years. Lots of re-reading and much quiet thought. A remarkable man, not easy, very challenging but well worth the effort. Takes the reader away from our consumer culture to something very profound, the transcendence of the self. Whitman tells you to carefully examine all that you have been told and to dismiss what insults your soul. Lots of thinking and reflecting needed.

Reading Whitman's poetry is pretty demanding but I'm finding one a time is the best way to assimilate some of the meaning. They were written in such a different time and way of life. Challenging but fascinating.

This makes a fantastic everyman sort of a Bible. The large print is a treat to look upon. No page numbers, however, and little differentiation between the different 'books' of Leaves of G. But these are mere quibbles. I'd not part with this colossal tome for more than double what I laid out.

A huge collection of this poets work but would have gained another star if it had included 'Darest thou now O soul'. I brought it as a present for someone who wanted that poem in particular and was infomred it was in this collection. Not so, so not 100% happy.

One star because you can't give Walt Whitman no stars but sadly I have been unable to read the book as it's so badly produced. The font, the spacing , the layout all make it unreadable. Amazon, surely you can do much better.

What's there to say? One of America's greatest poets. Some may not care for him but his genius is unshakable. Towering verse, massive penetration.

Fantastic poetry, but it is printed upside down and back to front. Not sure how this could have happened, but is incredibly stupid and ruins the otherwise perfect book

A cheap and cheerful reprint of the 1855 version of Leaves of Grass that is useful as a reading copy but don't expect high production values.
