With portrait and four illustrations, this is a study of Walt Whitman, who is considered by many to be the greatest of all American poets, by Symonds who, himself, was in the forefront of the bourgeois radical men and women with socialist ideals who were destined to reform public opinion in the 1890s. Whitman's poetry celebrates the freedom and dignity of the individual and sings the praises of democracy and the brotherhood of man. "Leaves of Grass", Whitman's most famous work, is unconventional in both content and technique, and probably the most influential volume of poems in the history of American literature.
