Descripci贸

'Marvellous. He sends you straight back to the text, makes you feel like you're returning to an old love' Guardian

What does it mean to be a self?

Mark Doty has always felt haunted by Walt Whitman's bold, new American voice, and by his equally radical claims about body and soul. In What Is the Grass keeps company with Whitman and his mutable, landmark work, Leaves of Grass , tracing the resonances between his own experience and the legendary poet's life and work.

What is it, then, between us? Whitman asks. Doty's answer is to explore spaces tied to Whitman's life and spaces where he finds the poet's ghost, meditating on desire, love, and the mysterious wellsprings of the poet's enduring work. It is an attempt to grasp Whitman's deeply hopeful vision of humanity.
