    A Mediated Vision, a Measured Voice: Culture and Criticism in Whitman's Prose

Abstract

Examines a broad range of Whitman's prose--from his early journalism through Democratic Vistas and Specimen Days--and stresses how Whitman's "voices or visions alternate in his literary and cultural criticism"; concludes that in his prose Whitman "found a form to fit his microscopically attuned eye and his castigating voice--both of which had little, if any, place in his poetry."
