Scouring Books: Leaves of Grass 150th Anniversary Edition

Leaves of Grass 150th Anniversary Edition
by Walt Whitman

Originally published in 1855, this is one of the most famous collections of poems in American literary history, and this particular edition reprints the original version (since Whitman had a habit of pulling a George Lucas and constantly revising it throughout his lifetime). Includes famous works like "Song of Myself" and "I Sing the Body Electric." Also includes an introduction from noted literary scholar Harold Bloom.

Bookshelf status: read.
