Abstract

Examines Whitman's journalism, focusing on his stories and editorials like "A Lazy Day" that present the author in a "slacker pose"; argues that while Whitman's "agitations for public space change over time," he "ultimately champions the notion of allocating higher grounds for public use, allowing all city-dwellers the opportunity to experience the all-encompassing power of the panoramic."
