Abstract

Offers a reading of "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" that emphasizes that, "although critics have sometimes claimed that Whitman's verse generally suffers from a looseness of form, it is precisely through a strategic and careful poetic form that he achieves in this poem a crossing that involves poet and reader alike in a timeless voyage of being."
