LEAVES OF GRASS



In the original printing, he did not include his name, only a daguerrotype.

He refined and reworked it; he published 9 versions during his lifetime, each version a slight variation on the previous. The first edition contained 12 poems; the final or "deathbed" version contained almost 400.

The tireless revision and pursuit of one work to embody all his poetic effort... this inspires me.
