Abstract

Examines the relation between Whitman and Functionalist architect Louis Sullivan and uses Whitman's poetry and cultural criticism "as a lens with which we might focus Sullivan's writings on architecture"; emphasizes "the extent to which the social and political assumptions of the two artists determined the experiments in form which each made in his respective art."
