Abstract

Explores Kinnell's "indebtedness to Whitman" by examining Kinnell's prose statements and his poems, especially "The Waking" and "Flying Home"; argues that "Kinnell's verse echoes Whitman's not only in its claim that the soul is not to be revered above the body but in its understanding of humanity's need to realign itself with the rest of creation."
