Abstract

Argues that in "A Song of the Rolling Earth" Whitman offers his most complete and in-depth explication of the relation between "two tropes--the unprintable word and the fertile earth mother," and contends that "it is here, if anywhere, that Whitman 'makes the dictionaries of words that print cannot touch.'"
