Abstract:

"In 1919, Sir William Osler, M.D., born in Ontario, was the Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford University and the most famous medical doctor in the world. In that year he wrote his Reminiscences about his personal and professional relationship thirty years earlier with the American poet Walt Whitman. Dr. Osler died before his manuscript could be published. Now, Philip W. Leon presents for the first time the complete text of Osler's Reminiscences, revealing the extent of the doctor's relationship with Whitman." "Whitman, Osler, and their mutual friends form a nineteenth-century tapestry, woven from the worlds of literature, medicine, and art, that includes novelists such as Henry James, Edith Wharton, and Owen Wister; medical doctors such as the Canadian mystic Richard M. Bucke, author of Cosmic Consciousness, and S. Weir Mitchell, famous for his "rest cure" prescribed for Whitman, Wharton, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Virginia Woolf, and others; artists Thomas Eakins and John Singer Sargent; and Victorian literati Edmund Gosse, the Brownings, Swinburne, and the Rossettis." "The culmination of research among archival sources at McGill, Johns Hopkins, Oxford, and Manchester, Walt Whitman and Sir William Osler presents previously unpublished documents such as Osler's marginal notes in his presentation copy of Leaves of Grass, and Osler's correspondence with members of a fraternal group in England who blended worship of Whitman with homosexual tendencies, radical socialism, and religion."--BOOK JACKET.
