Leaves of grass by Walt Whitman( Book )

2 editions published in 1860 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abraham Lincoln read it with approval, but Emily Dickinson described its bold language and themes as "disgraceful." Ralph Waldo Emerson found it "the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet produced." Published at the author's expense on July 4, 1855, Leaves of Grass inaugurated a new voice and style into American letters and gave expression to an optimistic, bombastic vision that took the nation as its subject. Unlike many other editions of Leaves of Grass, which reproduce various short, early versions, this Modern Library Paperback Classics "Death-bed" edition presents everything Whitman wrote in its final form, and includes newly commissioned notes.

William Wells€Brown€as born into slavery but escaped and went on to become America's first African American novelist. He was an€abolitionist and a passionate orator. Desiring to preserve the actions the "Negro took in€suppressing€the Slaveholder's Rebellion, "€Brown€researched the Rebellion and produced The Negro in the American Rebellion, His Heroism and His Fidelity, stressing that his information relies on fact. This text may have been a counter to Frederick Douglass' The Slaveholder's Rebellion as€Brown€and€Douglass had a fierce competition. They were known to have heated public arguments.€The Negro in the American Rebellion may have been a literary extension€of one such argument, as€Brown€felt Douglass relied too much on rhetorical€bullying€rather than simple straightforward storytelling
