Read full description of the books:
Fine research about a very interesting life, but it's a shame that a biography about an author who could write so beautifully, should itself be so poorly written.
How could this sentence get past an editor "Instead of glories Whitman had horrors previously unimaginable strung like beads on his smallest sights and hearings."
Or this whopper, “The night in August 1860 that Howells overcame his dread of Gomorrah and visited Pfaff’s fragrant temple of tobacco smoke, lager beer, Rhine wine, wurst and sauerkraut, the main fact that lodged itself in his mind was the presence of Walt Whitman, in a rough flannel coat with baggy trousers, seated at his case a little apart from the main table but clearly the object of a cult.”
That one exhausted me just retyping it.
The best-written parts of this book about poet Walt Whitman were written by Whitman himself.
Old Walt must be still shaking his head.
