      Revising Himself: Walt Whitman and Leaves of Grass

      The publication of Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass in 1855 was the debut
      of a masterpiece that shifted the course of American literary history.
      Refreshing and bold in both theme and style, the book underwent many
      revisions over Whitman's lifetime, becoming an ever-transforming
      kaleidoscope of poems. Join Library of Congress staff as we explore the
      different occupations and preparations that led Whitman to become the
      author of Leaves of Grass, as well as his subsequent evolution as a
      poet.
