what the critics had to say
What the critics had to say

I have had the honor, which I esteem a very high one, to know Walt Whitman intimately for several years, and am conversant with the details of his life and history.-William Douglas O'Connor

Walt Whitman (The book) is, in truth, an epic of the senses, passions, attributes of the body and soul.- John Borrough

The exceptionally strong egalitarian and inclusive impulse guiding his life's work, Leaves of Grass, is periodically disrupted by moments of insensitivity and racism.-Kenneth M. Price
