Born on Long Island and raised in Brooklyn, Walt Whitman spent his childhood and early adulthood amid the sights and sounds of New York City and its environs.
This essay looks at "poems, parodies, homages, reviews, and essays concerning Whitman that were either first published or reprinted in the Saturday Press," arguing that Henry Clapp used these pieces not only to publicize Whitman's poetry, but to depict him as "a factional poet of the North."
Gailey identifies Clapp as the author of this review.
