Description/Abstract

In the process of analyzing an author’s work, we often make assumptions about their intentions. For famous and influential authors such as Walt Whitman, widely varied theories about intentions abound. In my research, I sought to compare some of these theories with resources outside of Whitman’s work itself. By looking at the letters Whitman had received and saved, as well as the edits he had made to his writing, I attempted to create a more holistic analysis of the intentions Whitman brought into his work.
