Summary
The article explores the historical context and social background to the "Calamus" cluster of poems by U.S. poet Walt Whitman, collected in the book "Leaves of Grass." Emphasis is given to homosexual aspects of the poetry in relation to puritanical and antebellum public attitudes towards same-sex love. The author considers Whitman's sexual identity in the context of romantic friendships and the political significance of same-sex affection during a period of national sectional crisis. Other topics include heterosexual love in Whitman's poetry, cultural definitions of love, and antebellum masculinity
