Event Details 
An expeditious survey of Whitman’s career as a poet. We’ll observe the daring effervescence of Song of Myself, the stateliness of Crossing Brooklyn Ferry, the poetic daring of The Sleepers and Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking, the Calamus love poems, the Civil War poems, and later efforts by the “good grey poet.” Though Professor Emeritus McIntosh thinks of Whitman as a great poet, he’s also aware of his blatant nationalism and other shortcomings. Readings will be from the 1855 Leaves of Grass and another, more complete edition.
