The Centennial EssaysUnknown - 1994
In 1992, the year of the hundredth anniversary of Walt Whitman's death, a major gathering of international scholars took place at the University of Iowa. Over 150 participants heard papers by 20 of the world's most eminent critics of Whitman. Three generations of scholars offered new essays that brilliantly tracked the course of past and present Whitman scholarship. So significant was this historic celebration of the great American poet that the opening session was covered by CBS & ldquo; Sunday Morning, & rdquo; National Public Radio's & ldquo; Morning Edition, & rdquo; the New York Times, and other.
