Abstract

Argues against common, negative assumptions about Whitman's later poetry by defending the value of Whitman's eight "Fancies at Navesink" poems; compares the published versions to manuscript drafts of the poems to demonstrate that Whitman, in his later years, "reached a level of formal art that had eluded him before."
