WALT WHITMAN

An important Whitman item, but not a definitive biography. Masters has made no attempt to write a conventional year by year biography of the man. Rather he has treated various facets of his character, various periods of his intellectual and artistic growth. He has given reason to the work of one period or another -- he has given us the man behind the work. Not wholly satisfactory, but challenging and interesting and novel in method of handling.
