Summary
Explores seven poems in Walt Whitman's 'Leaves of Grass' that, while published in the 1876 version, did not appear in the definitive 1881 edition. These poems focus on the symbolism of the American flag, a motif seen throughout Whitman's writing. While the Civil War era marked a time preoccupied with icons of national unity, this article probes the distinctive poetic project of Whitman's flag verses and the reason for their removal from 'Leaves of Grass.' In speaking to posterity, Whitman favored less pristine, more war-ravaged depictions of Old Glory than appear within this poetic cluster
