    The Presence of Walt Whitman in Ha Jin's Waiting

Abstract

Examines Ha Jin's use of Whitman in his 1999 novel Waiting, analyzing the effects of evoking Whitman in a novel set during the Cultural Revolution and finding the character of Whitman "an elusive figure who is not so easily contained in single-minded political interpretations."
