Description Drum-Taps de Walt Whitman:

Walt Whitman worked as a nurse in an army hospital during the Civil War and published "Drum-Taps," his war poems, as the war was coming to an end. Later, the book came out in an expanded form, including When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd, Whitman's passionate elegy for Lincoln. The most moving and enduring poetry to emerge from America s most tragic conflict, "Drum-Taps" also helped to create a new, modern poetry of war, a poetry not just of patriotic exhortation but of somber witness. "Drum-Taps" is thus a central work not only of the Civil War but of our war-torn times. But "Drum-Taps" as readers know it from "Leaves of Grass" is different from the work of 1865. Whitman cut and reorganized the book, reducing its breadth of feeling and raw immediacy. This edition, the first to present the book in its original form since its initial publication 150 years ago, is a revelation, allowing one of Whitman s greatest achievements to appear again in all its troubling glory." Walt Whitman (1819-1892) was a poet, journalist, and essayist. His work "Leaves of Grass," which included a few scattered poems from "Drum-Taps," is considered a landmark of American literature. Lawrence Kramer is a musicologist and composer and a professor at Fordham University. He has been the editor of the journal "19th-Century Music" since 1993 and has written more than ten books on music, most recently "Expression and Truth: On the Music of Knowledge." He lives in New York City.
