Was Walt Whitman--celebrated poet of freedom and democracy--a determinist at heart? A close study of Leaves of Grass shows that Whitman consistently acknowledges the inevitability of all things. As John McDonald argues, this seeming contradiction lies at the heart of Whitman's poetry, a fact continually overlooked in the more than 100 years that critics have written about the poet and his magnum opus. This volume contains an extensive study of Walt Whitman's poetry that explores both Whitman's guiding philosophy and its uses to unlock meaning within Leaves of Grass. Beginning with a detailed explanation of determinism, the author examines Whitman's use of indirection, which the poet referred to at times as a game played to evade the reader's comprehension. The work seeks to define a philosophy which was, in the author's opinion, the most significant influence in Whitman's thought and in his art. Various poems are examined in depth, including Song of Myself, Passage to India and the particularly significant With Antecedents. Gathered here will be evidence from Whitman's poems and prose and from his notes and quoted remarks, enough evidence to show beyond doubt that determinism was indeed his most significant influence. An innovative look at one of America's greatest poets.

Myerson's massive bibliography documents the numerous editions, reprintings, and rearrangements of Whitman's lifetime project--the singularly important Leaves of Grass--as well as miscellaneous pieces: individually published poems, magazine and newspaper articles, broadsides, circulars, advertisements, and other prose works. Thoroughly illustrated (title pages, bindings, etc.), the volume also includes an index showing the publication history of the poems in Leaves of Grass and a bibliography of the principal works about Whitman. The clearest explication of this intricate publishing history yet accomplished. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Focusing on universal, current issues of concern to all people, ROOTS OF WISDOM leads students to the understanding that philosophical inquiry can provide. The chapters are framed by issues, but move chronologically using the canon of traditional philosophy as the thread. Women philosophers and non-western philosophies are integrated throughout as they relate to the canon. Mitchell uses popular culture to illustrate timeless philosophical problems. Her examples of cartoons, poetry, movies, and references to popular music bring the issues of philosophy to life for the student.
