More Light On The Earliest French Review Of Whitman, Ezra Greenspan

Walt Whitman Quarterly Review

Clears up a confusion regarding the author's article, "The Earliest French Review of Walt Whitman" in WWQR (6/3) by establishing that "the French translation of Leaves of Grass announced by the New York Saturday Press in 1860 was a literary hoax" and proposes that Henry Clapp may have been the hoax's perpetrator; see also Roger Asselineau's note in the same issue of WWQR.

Passage To More Than Imagism: Whitman's Imagistic Poems, John E. Schwiebert

Identifies Whitman's "imagistic poems" not as "an exculsive and distinctive subset of Leaves" but as "whole poems in which the discursive and didactic elements . . . are suppressed, and the visual element predominates"; reads these poems as important elements in his oeuvre that "invite us to limn significances (as poets do) behind even the most overtly 'simple' and 'objective' facts."

Whitman And American Personalistic Philosophy, Bernard Schmidt Apr 1990

Whitman And American Personalistic Philosophy, Bernard Schmidt

Walt Whitman Quarterly Review

Traces Whitman's influence on the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth-century philosophical movement known as "Personalism"--"a nonempirical philosophy in which the self obtains knowledge from a mighty power of reason, which is creative and can fashion reality from its own ideas"--and argues that "the American writer who first formally used the term 'Personalism' was Walt Whitman" and that "wherever the Personalistic path leads, it should not be forgotten that there was a distinct philosophical school that formally began with Whitman's article 'Personalism.'"
