`Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged,
Missing me one place search another,
I stop some where waiting for you.'
First published by Walt Whitman in 1855, Leaves of Grass introduced the world to
a new and uniquely American form of poetry. Alive with the mythical strength
and vitality that epitomised the American experience in the nineteenth century,
and published here with rarely collected illustrative woodcuts by Rockwell
Kent, Leaves of Grass continues to
inspire, uplift and unite.
