Abstract

Compares Whitman and Johnson as “the oldest, wisest, and well-acknowledged leaders of their circle of close friends” and explores their mutual love of “affectionate conviviality and comradeship,” apparent especially in Whitman’s “late poem, ‘After the Supper and Talk,’” with its “poignant, even uncanny, affinity to Johnson’s thoughts, feelings, and habits.”
