Critical sites about Leaves of Grass
- Leaves of Grass, by Walt Whitman
- “If they can see nothing in this book except indecency and bombastictruisms, the inference must be that their sensibilities are not delicate enough to recognize the fresh, strong, healthy presentation of common things in a way that revivifies them, the generous aspiration, the fine sympathy with man and nature, the buoyant belief in immortality, which are no less characteristic of the author than his mistaken boldness in displaying the carnal side of existence, and his particularity in describing disease or loathsome decay.”
