In a Walt Whitman Novel, Lost for 165 Years, Clues to ‘Leaves of Grass’ – Jennifer Schuessler –New York Times – 2/20/17

Whitman’s mystery novel

“offers clues to another mystery: how a workaday journalist and mostly conventional poet transformed himself into the author of the sensuous, philosophical, wildly experimental and altogether unclassifiable free verse of ‘Leaves of Grass.’
