- Earth My Likeness
- by Walt Whitman
- Price: $18.95
While Walt Whitman is best known as America's first great urban poet, he was also a gifted nature poet, describing what it is like to be in contact with the earth, water and fresh air. In Earth My Likeness, editor Howard Nelson brings together artist Rod MacIver's shimmering, evocative watercolors with Whitman's poems and selections of poetic passages from his book of spontaneous prose. This new illustrated anthology memorializes the seashore, the night sky, animals, and simply loafing on the grass, and it contains much of Whitman's best and most vital work.
