Books: Leaves of GrassWhy I am recommending this book:
Words, composed beautifully, allow us to access our collective humanity. Walt Whitman composes words, most beautifully.
"The most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet contributed." - Ralph Waldo Emerson. Inspired by transcendentalism, Whitman's immortal collection includes some of the greatest poems of modern times, including his masterpiece "Song of Myself." Shattering standard conventions of symbolism and allegory, it stands as an unabashed celebration of body and nature.
