Resumen del libro

As he was turning forty, Walt Whitman wrote twelve poems in a small handmade book he entitled "Live Oak, With Moss." The poems were intensely private reflections on his attraction to and affection for other men. They were also Whitman's most adventurous explorations of the theme of same-sex love, composed decades before the word "homosexual" came into use. This revolutionary, extraordinarily beautiful and passionate cluster of poems was never published by Whitman and has remained unknown to the general public-until now.

New York Times bestselling and Caldecott Award-winning illustrator Brian Selznick offers a provocative visual narrative of "Live Oak, With Moss," and Whitman scholar Karen Karbiener reconstructs the story of the poetic cluster's creation and destruction. Walt Whitman's reassembled, reinterpreted Live Oak, With Moss serves as a source of inspiration and a cause for celebration.

Biografía del autor

Walt Whitman (1819-1892) es una de las máximas figuras de la lírica norteamericana, habiendo influido en numerosos poetas posteriores tanto del Nuevo Conteniente como del Viejo. Hombre de físico agraciado, de personalidad prodigiosa y de actividad incansable, es sin duda uno de los grandes iconos de la poesía.
