Abstract

Explores Whitman's influence on author, editor, and avowed Communist Michael Gold, examining Gold's Jews Without Money (1930), his columns for the Daily Worker, and his editing for the New Masses to demonstrate how he "used Whitman repeatedly to demonstrate that Communism with a capital C was the culmination of American culture."
