Walt Whitman and the Civil War
Whitman’s Civil War writings give us a dual portrait, first the war as “a strange, unloosen’d wondrous time,” and second the emergence of a new Whitman.In this talk, UVM professor Huck Gutman examines some of the most remarkable poems about war ever published and looks at Whitman’s remarkable development.
