Abstract

Examines "the place of the president in Whitman's democratic and poetic theories" and offers a "general outline of Whitman's serious, though shifting, perspectives on the presidency," seeking to identify "Whitman's personalist and paradoxical theory of the place of presidential power in American democracy," including the relationship of the American president to the American poet.
