Pressestimmen"Reconstituting the American Renaissance will dramatically change the way scholars view the relationship of Whitman to Emerson and the character of their literary enterprises... The argumentative center of the book and a tour-de-force worth the price of admission is Jay Grossman's reading of Emerson's famous note to Whitman 'greeting him at the beginning of a great career.' Against the entire weight of previous scholarship Grossman convincingly shows the letter for what it is, a mode of damning with faint praise that will not grant to Whitman the status of poet or his verse the status of poetry." Jay Fliegelman, Stanford University
