Daybooks and Notebooks, Volume III: Diary in Canada, Notebooks, Index
NYU Press, 2007 - Всего страниц: 306
General Series Editors Gay Wilson Allen and Sculley Bradley Originally published between 1961 and 1984, and now available in paperback for the first time, the critically acclaimed Collected Writings of Walt Whitman captures every facet of one of America's most important poets. Daybooks and Notebooks is an invaluable source for reference on Whitman's daily activities. This sixteen-year record supplements the biographical information provided in the six volumes of Whitman's Correspondence, functioning as an account book, diary, journal, commonplace book, and notebook all in one. Volume III collects assorted journals, autobiographical notes, and notebooks. Diary in Canada captures Whitman's impressions of Canada, where he spent the summer of 1880. "Everything growing well . . ." he wrote, "never have I seen grass and trees and bushery to greater advantage." Words, a treatise on language that Whitman compiled for personal use, contains musings on colloquialisms, phonetic pronunciations of foreign words, and magazines clippings on a variety of linguistic subjects. Volume III concludes with an index to the Daybooks and Notebooks series. Praise for the original edition: "These are important books for serious study of Whitman's life and work and need to be present in every graduate and research library." -Choice -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- William White was Professor and Director of the Journalism Program at Oakland University.
