Leaves of Grass
First published in the year 1855; the present book 'Leaves of Grass' is a poetry collection by the American poet Walt Whitman. The poems of Leaves of Grass are loosely connected; with each representing Whitman's celebration of his philosophy of life and humanity. This book is notable for its discussion of delight in sensual pleasures during a time when such candid displays were considered immoral. Where much previous poetry; especially English; relied on symbolism; allegory; and meditation on the religious and spiritual; 'Leaves of Grass' exalted the body and the material world.
