Abstract

Traces Whitman's long and complex relationship with Robert Pearsall Smith, his wife Hannah Whitall Smith, and their children, Logan Pearsall Smith, Alys Pearsall Smith, and Mary Whitall Smith Costelloe, and suggests that Mary's love affair with Bernard Berenson in 1891 was a major reason for the cooling of the family's affection for Whitman, a change in attitude noticed by Richard Maurice Bucke on his visit that year to the Smiths and Costelloes in England and communicated by him to Whitman.
