    The Texts and Contexts of "Calamus": Did Whitman Censor Himself in 1860?

Abstract

Examines the recent controversy over the relationship of the "Live Oak, with Moss" sequence to the 'Calamus' cluster and argues that, "when paired with contextual evidence, an examination of the manuscripts of the 'Calamus' poems offers no basis for the charge of self-censorship and defeat" in this sequence of poems.
