研究テーマの
説明
Walt Whitman, the 19th century American poet, is considered by many critics to be the ‘father’ of American literature. His life’s work, Leaves of Grass, was first published in 1855, and was written at a critical time in America’s young history, when it was struggling to define its culture and identity against outdated European models. Part of the generation known as ‘the American Renaissance,’ Whitman is noted for ‘freeing’ verse from its formal constraints and offering a vision of ‘democratic man’ that still resonates with Americans today.
