Abstract

Seeks to resolve the seeming contradiction between Whitman's love of Sir Walter Scott and the great differences between their works by offering a detailed examination of the likely influences Scott had on Whitman; concludes that the "organic evolution and wholeness of (Leaves of Grass) both recreates and transforms Scott's ballads."
