Abstract

Defends "Passage to India" against previous critics by offering a reading emphasizing Whitman's own identification with Columbus and his underlying goal in the poem to express "the essential ultimate me": a vision of the poet as threefold reconciler "between Western and Eastern halves of humankind, between humankind and Nature, and between humankind and God."
