Abstract

Explores the hitherto neglected topic of Whitman's potential influence on his admirer, Bram Stoker, emphasizing the writers' mutual fascination with death, with the boundaries of body and self, and with the connectedness between things; explicates Stoker's "nightmarish inversion" of Whitman's themes.
