Whitman Exhibit at NY Public Library

gsandler writes Here is a New
York Times
story about an exhibit at the New
York Public Library
commemorating the 150th anniversary of the first edition of Walt Whitman’s
"Leaves of Grass." 
“Drawing on the library’s extensive holdings, Mr. Gewirtz (curator) has put on display at least one copy of every authorized American edition of “Leaves,” along with the separate collections of poetry that Whitman later incorporated into his
work… He has opened these books to specific pages… with the goal, he said in an interview, of bringing attention to three aspects of “Leaves” that he believes have gotten short shrift: the poem’s spiritual message, its homosexual aspects and its author’s racial views.”(Registration at the NY Times web site is required.)”
