Abstract

Examines Whitman's attitudes toward wounded bodies and argues that "dressing a wound, and writing a poem about dressing a wound (are) equivalent acts in Whitman's imagination"; compares Whitman's emphasis on the "rescuing" function of poetry to William Carlos Williams' emphasis on "defamiliarization" of habits of perception of the body in Spring and All.
