Notes

INTRODUCTION

1. When possible, I have endeavored to include images of the most critical of Whitman’s manuscripts where they are discussed in this study. All of the images described in this book can be found in digital form at the online Walt Whitman Archive (www.whitmanarchive.org). In most cases the best way to access them is though the link “Finding Aids for Manuscripts at Individual Repositories,” found in the “Manuscripts” section. In some cases the images reproduced in this book have been resized or colorized slightly to enhance legibility.


1. HOW WHITMAN USED HIS EARLY NOTEBOOKS

1. Previous scholars have also called it the “albot Wilson” notebook because of their dependence on a poor quality microfilm copy.

2. See Gail Fineberg, “LC’s Missing Whitman Notes Found in N.Y.,” Library of Congress Gazette, February 24, 1995, http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/ wwhtml/gazette1.html; Birney, “Missing Whitman Notebooks.”

3. The scans are available at the Library of Congress’s American Memory site, http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/collections/whitman/index.html.

4. The Uncollected Poetry and Prose of Walt Whitman, here After UPP.

5. Shephard, “Possible Sources,” 67n.

6. To my knowledge the only other scholar who accurately dated the notebook, at least in writing, was Floyd Stovall in “Dating Whitman’s Early Notebooks.”

7. Grier, “Walt Whitman’s Earliest Known Notebook.”

8. Higgins, “Wage Slavery.”

9. Erkkila, Whitman the Political Poet, 50.

10. Allen, The Solitary Singer, 134.
