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. This two-volume set proves that Whitman's prose has a quality no less original and distinctive than his poetry. Volume I: Specimen Days, originally written and published as newspaper dispatches, is a collection of Whitman's on-the-spot notes of his experiences as a volunteer nurse in the hospitals in and around Washington during the Civil War. It contains, too, his nature studies, jotted down at the Stafford Farm near Camden during the years of convalescence after his paralysis in 1873. Volume II contains three of Whitman's prose collections, Collect, November Boughs, and Good-Bye My Fancy, plus seven pieces not included in the original 1892 edition of the Complete Prose Works.
