Read full description of the books:
"Foglie d'erba" di Walt Whitman è la raccolta poetica di una vita. Costantemente modificata dall'autore fino ai suoi ultimi giorni, è un'opera che si muove rapida tra la celebrazione appassionata del corpo sensuale e l'invocazione alla presa di coscienza universale. Stampato per la prima volta in forma anonima, "diverso" già nella sua struttura slegata e fluviale, "Foglie d'erba" inneggia alla memoria storica del Paese e grida la gioia dei sentimenti, l'urgenza naturalistica, ma anche il dolore della guerra. Il riconoscimento delle diversità e l'onestà delle emozioni sono la pietra angolare della poetica di Whitman. Con lui nasce il Sogno Americano.

Read information about the authorWalter Whitman was an American poet, essayist, journalist, and humanist. He was a part of the transition between Transcendentalism and realism, incorporating both views in his works. Whitman is among the most influential poets in the American canon, often called the father of free verse.
Born on Long Island, Whitman worked as a journalist, a teacher, a government clerk, and a volunteer nurse during the American Civil War in addition to publishing his poetry. Early in his career, he also produced a temperance novel, Franklin Evans (1842).
After working as clerk, teacher, journalist and laborer, Whitman wrote his masterpiece, Leaves of Grass, pioneering free verse poetry in a humanistic celebration of humanity, in 1855. Emerson, whom Whitman revered, said of Leaves of Grass that it held "incomparable things incomparably said." During the Civil War, Whitman worked as an army nurse, later writing Drum Taps (1865) and Memoranda During the War (1867). His health compromised by the experience, he was given work at the Treasury Department in Washington, D.C. After a stroke in 1873, which left him partially paralyzed, Whitman lived his next 20 years with his brother, writing mainly prose, such as Democratic Vistas (1870). Leaves of Grass was published in nine editions, with Whitman elaborating on it in each successive edition. In 1881, the book had the compliment of being banned by the commonwealth of Massachusetts on charges of immorality. A good friend of Robert Ingersoll, Whitman was at most a Deist who scorned religion. D. 1892.
