Abstract

Examines "how Whitman's positioning of the human body on horizontal and vertical axes" in "Song of Myself" illuminates his "central paradox" (that he simultaneously champions "individuality and democracy"); tracks how "horizontal orientation . . . carries democratic significance," while verticality signals individuality, with hair the image of "connectedness."
