Book Overview
First published in 1897, The Wound Dresser contains a collection of Walt Whitman's letters written from hospitals in Washington during the American civil war. This fascinating volume offers a unique glimpse into Whitman's experiences volunteering as a nurse in army hospitals during the American civil war, providing the reader with a telling insight into the mind of America's greatest poet. The Wound Dresser was published posthumously by Whitman's literary executor Richard Maurice Bucke. Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892) was an American essayist, poet, and journalist who was pivotal to the transition from transcendentalism to realism. His work was notably divisive and claimed by many to be obscene when first published, but he is now considered to be one of the most influential people in the American poetic canon and the father of free verse. Other notable works by this author include: Franklin Evans (1842), Life and Adventures of Jack Engle (1852), and Leaves of Grass (1855). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
