WITH WALT WHITMAN: HIMSELF IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY, IN AMERICA
FALL 2015 | By JEAN HUETS | A multi-touch book for iPad/Mac. Over 300 period images, plus interactive sidebars and popovers, and text with extensive quotes by Walt and his family and friends (and a few enemies) bring to life the places, people, and tempestuous events of Walt’s time: a family harrowed by mental illness; the bloody Civil War; burgeoning, brawling Manhattan and Brooklyn; friends and lovers; literary allies and rivals; and his beloved America, racked by disunion even while racing westward. Interactive features enhance a close reading of the poem, “I Sing the Body Electric.”
Walt Whitman called his masterwork Leaves of Grass “an attempt … to put a Person, a human being (myself, in the latter half of the Nineteenth Century, in America,) freely, fully and truly on record.” With Walt Whitman, Himself joins Walt, a man rooted in his time and place, a poet who transcends time and place.
