Zweig on Whitman

posted by drew


“In 1848, Walt Whitman was twenty-nine years old, and had not yet written a single text that we now remember. Yet seven years after his twenty-ninth birthday, this ordinary American man with no visible talents would publish the most unusual book of poems ever to be written in the United States."

--Paul Zweig (1984)
