What Is the Grass: Walt Whitman in My Life

Paperback

Price: $15.95

Overview

Mark Doty has always felt haunted by Walt Whitman’s perennially new American voice, and by his equally radical claims about body and soul. In What Is the Grass, Doty effortlessly blends biography, criticism, and memoir to keep company with Whitman and his Leaves of Grass, tracing the resonances between his own experience and the legendary poet’s life and work.

Reviews
Quick-witted, slyly erotic, and sometimes ecstatic, this book explores Mark Doty's relationship with Walt Whitman, or with the idea of Walt Whitman. It is intimate in its reality and in all that it imagines, and it captures with splendid lyricism the author's generous obsession with his forebear. Mark Doty has written a literate and lovely volume.–Andrew Solomon
