    The Celebration of Nativity: "Broad-Axe Poem"

    Author:

Abstract

Presents a reading of Whitman's "Broad-Axe Poem" that emphasizes themes of "nativity" and "unification" and contends that "'Broad-Axe Poem' achieves in a most original way the fusion of Mother, Son and States that Whitman more explicitly, but less successfully, attempted in 'Poem of Many in One.'"
