Considered by many to be the quintessential American poet, Walt Whitman (1819-1892) exerted a profound influence on all the American poets who came after him. And it was with this inspired, oceanic medley, "Song of Myself" (which in the first editions of Leaves of Grass was still nameless), that this great poet first made himself known to the world.

Readers familiar with the later, more widely published version of Leaves of Grass will find this first version of "Song of Myself" new, surprising, and often superior to the later versions - and exhilarating in the freshness of its vision. In this inexpensive new edition, this enormously influential work will especially delight students, teachers, and any devotee of Walt Whitman.

Unabridged Dover (2001) republication of "Song of Myself" from the first (1855) edition of Leaves of Grass.
