“This is the most illuminating study ever written about how an American writer has been absorbed into another culture. This book is a major achievement not only in Whitman studies but in the emerging field of intercultural textuality.”—Ed Folsom

In this first comprehensive study in English of Walt Whitman's reception in the German-speaking countries, Walter Grünzweig posits a very broadly based notion of culture, embodying a wide variety of elements such as high literature, politics, youth movements, sexuality, and other subcultures.
