Ukážkové dni


O obsahu Ukážkových dní (Whitmanov denník) možno povedať asi toľko, že je to bohatá a pestrá zmes spomienok, dojmov, zážitkov, príhod, pozorovaní, úvah, správ týkajúcich sa aj samého autora, ale i amerického života vôbec. Dominuje medzi nimi súbor
zápiskov z občianskej vojny Severu proti Juhu. S otriasajúcimi vojnovými zážitkami príkro, no šťastne kontrastujú idylické obrázky prírodných zákutí. Trochu iné sú jeho cestopisné črtyz putovania po americkom Západe a po Kanade. Spolu tieto príbehy
tvoria kostru akejsi biografie, ako sa to ukazuje na začiatku knihy.

Leaves of Grass


As Malcolm Cowley says in his introduction, the first edition of "Leaves of Grass" 'might be called the buried masterpiece of American writing', for it exhibits 'Whitman at his best, Whitman at his freshest in vision and boldest in language, Whitman transformed by a new experience.' Mr Cowley has taken the first edition from its narrow circulation among scholars, faithfully edited it, added his own introduction and Whitman's original introduction (which never appeared in any other edition during Whitman's life), and returned it to the common readership to whom the great poet really speaks.

Listy trávy


Kniha Listy trávy je první český překlad původního vydání Leaves of Grass (1855) Walta Whitmana. Obsahuje i pasáže, které v pozdějších vydáních sám básník vyškrtal nebo poupravil. Vůbec poprvé si tu český čtenář může přečíst i Whitmanovu rozsáhlou předmluvu, proslulý a vlivný poetický manifest. Samotnou básnickou sumu otevírá rozsáhlá skladba ve vydání poslední ruky pojmenovaná jako Zpěv o mně (Song of Myself), nejpoetičtější, nejpropracovanější a zároveň nejaktuálnější text Listů trávy. Následuje jedenáct dalších skladeb. Silně humanistický a všeobjímající Whitmanův étos vstupuje v době narůstající xenofobie do nových souvislostí. Současný překlad amerikanisty a písňového folkloristy Ondřeje Skovajsy a spisovatelky a muzikantky Hany Lundiakové hledá adekvátní protějšek k Whitmanovu hlasu. Snaží se zachytit lahodnost svobody a rozkoš existence. Dnes už netřeba cenzurovat spermaticky uvolněné Whitmanovy zpěvy a živelný křik, je třeba je spíše zdůraznit. Jako horizont, odkud jsme vyšli a kam směřujeme.

Spev o mne


Spev o mne, úvodná báseň zo zbierky Walta Whitmana Steblá trávy (1855), sa považuje za jednu z najvýznamnejších básní v americkej literatúre. Táto nadčasová báseň o demokracii a fantázii, o živote a smrti, o úžasnej skúsenosti človeka so svojou vlastnou existenciou v mnohých ohľadoch doteraz podnecuje našu zvedavosť. „Ide vlastne o lyrický epos (niekoľko častí je vyslovene epických), ktorý inšpiruje vitálnostou, šírkou časového a priestorového záberu, vôbec tým, čo básnik obsiahol, zachytením mnohotvárnosti americkej reality, plne zhodnocujúcim chápaním prírody, vyrovnaným vzťahom k smrti, metafyzickými otázkami, demokratickosťou, mnohosubjektovosťou subjektu, smelou optikou... Z diela možno vyvodiť závery, na čom sa zakladá veľká moderná poézia.“ (Ján Zambor) Súčasťou knihy je štúdia, ktorej autorom je významný americký básnik Robert Hass.

Leaves of Grass


The publication of "Leaves of Grass" in July 1855 was a landmark event in literary history. Ralph Waldo Emerson judged the book "the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom America has yet contributed." Nothing like the volume had ever appeared before. Everything about it - the unusual jacket and title page, the exuberant preface, the twelve free-flowing, untitled poems embracing every realm of experience - was new. The 1855 edition broke new ground in its relaxed style, which prefigured free verse; in its sexual candor; in its images of racial bonding and democratic togetherness; and in the intensity of its affirmation of the sanctity of the physical world.

OWC Leaves of Grass


Whitman is today regarded as America's Homer or Dante, and his work the touchstone for literary originality in the New World. In Leaves of Grass, he abandoned the rules of traditional poetry - breaking the standard metred line, discarding the obligatory rhyming scheme, and using the vernacular. Emily Dickinson condemned his sexual and physiological allusions as 'disgraceful', but Emerson saw the book as the 'most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet contributed'. A century later it is his judgement of this autobiographical vision of the vigour of the American nation that has proved the more enduring. This is the most up-to-date edition for student use, with full critical apparatus.

Leaves of Grass


First published in 1855 with Whitman's own money, Leaves of Grass is a highly sensual collection of verses that became a monument to American poetry.

The journalist, philosopher, clerk, and Civil War nurse spent the following four decades revising and expanding the work from twelve poems to a massive four-hundred-poem compilation. Celebrating nature and human sexuality with explicit imagery, his poetry was controversial but also drew high praise from the likes of Alfred Tennyson and D. H. Lawrence, who called him the "greatest modern poet."

With its sensuous and highly imaginative free-form verses, Walt Whitman's greatest masterpiece is now available in an elegantly designed clothbound edition with an elastic closure and a new introduction.
