Abstract

Examines the lives of some of Whitman's friends and followers in and around Camden, New Jersey, in the time shortly after the poet's death; uses the correspondence of Horace Traubel, Richard M. Bucke, Thomas Harned, John Symonds and others to explore how Whitman's sexuality, reputation, and writing were debated and interpreted by his followers in the wake of the poet's death.
