Traces the “three main phases of Milosz’s acquaintance with Whitman,” from Milosz’s initial reading of Whitman in Polish translations and “his recognition of the Polish fascination with Whitman,” through his reading of Whitman in the original English while in Berkeley in the 1960s and his translations of Whitman into Polish, through a final phase “pregnant with commentaries formulated in different essays,” culminating in his “final view of Whitman” as “the poet of the great reality.”
