Abstract

Focuses on three critically neglected poems in Whitman's Sea-Drift cluster ("On the Beach at Night," "The World Below the Brine" and "On the Beach at Night Alone") and reads the poems as an important "interruption" in the cluster as a whole, in which the poet establishes crucial ideas of mortality, materiality and spirituality.
