WALT WHITMAN’S Drum-Taps occupies a unique place in American literature

WALT WHITMAN’S Drum-Taps occupies a unique place in American literature. It is by common consent the only enduring literary work about the Civil War based on firsthand experience, in Whitman’s case his work in the field hospitals in and around Washington where he tended the sick and the dying. Most of the poems composed in immediate response to the war have faded away; the poems of Drum-Taps are still widely read and taught.

A selection taken from Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass. Little Black Classics celebrate the huge range and diversity of Penguin Classics, with books from around the world and across many centuries. They take us from a balloon ride over Victorian London to a garden of blossom in Japan, from Tierra del Fuego to 16th century California and the Russian steppe. Here are stories lyrical and savage; poems epic and intimate; essays satirical and inspirational; and ideas that have shaped the lives of millions.

Shortly after Whitman's birth, the family moved to Brooklyn, where Walt Sr. .Drum-Taps, Whitman's wartime poetry (later incorporated into Leaves of Grass), published. was a spectacular failure in the house-building business. Whitman went to public school until he was 12 years of age, at which point he took up working and learned the trade of a printer. The book was once again a financial failure and Whitman went into a period of bankruptcy and unemployment for a number of years. In 1861, with the outbreak of the American Civil War, Whitman traveled to Washington, . to work as a volunteer nurse for wounded soldiers.

Walt Whitman (/ˈhwɪtmən/; May 31, 1819 – March 26, 1892) was an American poet, essayist, and journalist. Whitman is among the most influential poets in the American canon, often called the father of free verse. His work was controversial in its time, particularly his poetry collection Leaves of Grass, which was described as obscene for its overt sensuality.

This was a gift for my father in law, and I am always running out of ideas for his birthdays & christmas so when I heard a conversation on NPR talking about the benifits to veterans after reading this I bought this for him. Now he doesn't talk too much about his days in Vietnam, but I think that this book has helped him start talking about it & it really did help him a lot.

Whitman's Drum Taps are solid entertainment an en lightening glimpse into Whitman himself. Whitman starts off very jingoistic about the war, and then slowly becomes horrified at the cost as he works in field hospitals, finally ending with a hopeful melancholia.
