"Leaves of Grass" is a poetry collection by the American poet Walt Whitman (1819–1892). Though the first edition was published in 1855, Whitman spent his entire life writing Leaves of Grass, revising it in several editions until his death. This book is notable for its delight in and praise of the senses during a time when such candid displays were considered immoral. Where much previous poetry, especially "English", relied on symbolism, allegory, and meditation on the religious and spiritual, "Leaves of Grass" (particularly the first edition) exalted the body and the material world. Influenced by Ralph Waldo Emerson and the Transcendentalist movement, itself an offshoot of Romanticism, Whitman's poetry praises nature and the individual human's role in it. However, much like Emerson, Whitman does not diminish the role of the mind or the spirit; rather, he elevates the human form and the human mind, deeming both worthy of poetic praise.
