A long overdue comparative study of the American voices in hemispheric poetry, this book brings cross-cultural and interdisciplinary considerations to the work of Whitman and Neruda. Nolan proposes American Indian poetics as the model for the poets’ own poetics. Whitman and Neruda wrote from an Americanist perspective. Both developed an oral, tribal poetics and assumed shamanic voices and personae in their major works, ‘Leaves of Grass’ and ‘Canto General’. The fresh reading of two major American poets helps to break through the partitions that separate the native, English and Spanish poetic responses to the American hemisphere.
