      "For some devoted readers in the late nineteenth century, Walt Whitman was a 'man magnified to the dimensions of a god,' and Leaves of Grass a divinely inspired gospel. In a series of entertaining and acutely observed biographies of the 'Whitman disciples,' Robertson situates their fervor in a complex religions landscape."¬óThe New Yorker

      "Robertson's collection of reflective biographies brilliantly illuminates Whitman's life and the wider life of his poetry. It is a book of physical, intellectual and spiritual adventures, and the author's own adventures with Whitman are not the least of its pleasures."--Michael Schmidt, Financial Times
