Walt Whitman is what he is, the poetic version of the american idol and someone who USA would need like forever to shout what the americans need to remember and europe would need to observe shouting.
He have had is own things but if someone wants to "make america great again" this is a must have and if someone want to be american or shouted like one this would be a gift ( )

Whitman is the best at what he does. He had great talent. I love reading his work. ( )

I love having the complete works all in one cover. I own other Whitman books that are more focused, but this is my "go-to copy." For one thing, it's edited better than so many versions of any poet's work. (N.B. The minus one half has to do with a couple small problems in the editing, rather than with the poetry itself.) With Whitman making changes constantly in his early "printings" of Leaves of Grass and adding onto it through his lifetime, it's impossible to know exactly what he wanted. (Perhaps on different days, he wanted different things.) It also should give any aspiring poet some good vibes to know that "the quintessential American poet" was forced to publish his own poetry. I'm enthralled by some of the notes here, despite the age of them. I love reading the various changes in his work and sometimes understanding exactly why, other times thinking he'd have done well to leave it alone (no pun intended.) No matter how many other copies I get, this one will remain in my forever library. It's not only a good edition of the complete works, but it's a helpful resource for lovers of poetry or students reading this work for the first time. It's also a joy to simply pop open a page and read. I've not perused every single edition of the complete poems, but for a simple reader who loves poetry, this edition offers a lot.

I haven't spoken much about the work itself, and that is because I think every reader will discover whether or not this poetry (or any poetry) is a "good fit" for themselves. There is a lot to discover between these two covers. Not all of Whitman's poetry is as trumpet-like as "Song of Myself" or "I sing the Body Electric." So if it's more quiet intensity or solemnity you seek, that can be found here as well. Even at his worst, (and in any complete collection, there will be some "worsts,") Whitman has a stunning command of diction, describes beauty and sensuality in a way that catches my breath. Lyrical, expansive, mournful then euphoric, his rhythms are flexible yet measured and often demand reading aloud. In moments of despair, I learned to whisper poetry to myself in my youth, and some of Whitman's are in that memorized repertoire. Certain poems never cease to make shivers run down my back. There's a freedom, an open sensuality and gusto that live in these words. Add to it all of the information about Whitman's sexuality and what must have been a much restricted world, and the joy and freedom become even more astonishing. Everyone American should read Walt Whitman. We don't have to like him, but at least we can recognize how much of an historical figure he truly is. I believe this volume will open many eyes to exactly that. ( )

Whitman is THE American poet. He is flightly, obnoxious, full of himself and thoroughly delightful. this is a wonderful collection. Sometimes I wish I had a pocket edition of Song of Myself, but then everytime I open this, I find a new gem. ( )
