    Leaves of Grass as a "Woman's Book"

    Author:

Abstract

Argues that "Leaves can be read as a 'woman's book,' but that this must be done from a different critical perspective than has thus far been taken" and goes on to use the strategies of Helene Cixous to read Whitman's poems, focusing upon "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry," "The Sleepers," and Section 11 of "Song of Myself."
