While this book did little for me, it was an opportunity to discover more about Mr. Whitman.

The story itself felt like someone trying to follow in the lines of C. Dickens, but not doing it particularly well. He was picking a bone with lawyers, and had empathy for orphans. From the ad he put in the

Dieser Roman von Walt Whitman wurde 1852 anonym in einer Zeitung veröffentlicht und war danach unbekannt, bis er 2016 in einem Archiv wiederentdeckt wurde - eine Sensation! Whitman hat den Roman in seinem späteren Leben nie erwähnt, sein anderer bekannter Roman war ihm sogar peinlich. In der Tat sol

L’avvocato e lo spazzino
Il giovane Jack passeggia nel cimitero della Trinity Church a Manhattan, contemplando quanto è scritto sulle lapidi da cui è circondato.

This book is awful.
God bless Jon Hamm.

Die Entdeckung eines verschollenen oder bisher unbekannten Manuskripts kann ebenso spannend sein wie die darin erzählte Geschichte. Walt Whitmans Roman „Jack Engles Leben und Abenteuer“ lässt sich zum Glück exakt den Arbeitsnotizen des Autors in seinem Notizbuch zuordnen. Whitman erzählt darin vom e

Having never read Whitman before, I came into this novel with virgin expectations. I knew Leaves of Grass was a monumental work of poetry and some tidbits of Whitman's biography, but otherwise I simply hoped for some good ol' writing from the 1800s. With that respect, this newly-discovered novella i
