    When Time and Place Avail: Whitman's Written Orator Reconsidered

    Author:

Abstract

Explores Whitman's hope for "a written speech" and looks to "the culture of nineteenth-century American oratory" for precedents in the search for "a fusion of speech and writing," particularly "the epideictic or commemorative oratory of Daniel Webster and Edward Everett"; uses these materials to read "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry."
