“My words itch at your ears till you understand them.”—“Song of Myself” by Walt Whitman

There is a reason the words of Walt Whitman have persisted in American literature, in literature at large, for so long. He was not simply a man of his time, not just a writer for the moment. Whitman was a man of the people and a writer of the soul—the souls of humankind, and the soul of America.

Miracles and Vistas: A Walt Whitman Compendium spans the breadth of Whitman’s literary and lyrical work, from his lectures and essays to his prose and to both his short- and long-form poetry. The Compendium begins with Whitman’s political works, several of which have direct relevance on the state of America and the world today. After these pieces comes a selection of his humorous, touching, and unusual fiction and short poetry. Then the whole compilation culminates in his unparalleled and all-encompassing “Song of Myself.”

Compiled by Stefan Rudnicki with Alison Belle Bews, this original collection from Skyboat Media showcases the “multitudes” contained in Whitman’s writing.
