A timeless collection of hundreds of poems that resonate to the American spirit.  

Leaves of Grass is a timeless collection of poems and essays penned by influential nineteenth-century writer Walt Whitman. This profound compilation explores topics such as nature, mysticism, mortality, transcendentalism, and democracy. Inspired by personal experiences and observations, Whitman spent almost four decades piecing together the complete work, sharing societal ideals and epiphanies about life that still resonate with readers today. This edition of the complete Leaves of Grass also includes Whitman’s preface to the original 1855 edition, in which he expounds on his personal philosophy of writing poetry, and an introduction by scholar Kenneth C. Mondschein.

Walt Whitman (1819–1892) was an American poet, essayist, and journalist. He was part of the humanist movement, and his work was controversial in its time. His best-known work is Leaves of Grass.
