With support from NHPRC, we've added 170 letters from Louisa Van Velsor Whitman to her son Walt. These letters illuminate the most important relationship in the poet's life and offer a rare glimpse into the emotional life of a working-class nineteenth-century American woman. Wesley Raabe's introduction provides more information.
"Every Atom: Walt Whitman's 'Song of Myself,'" an open online course, will be offered by Ed Folsom and Christopher Merrill from February 17 to March 29, 2014. For more information and to sign up, click here.
Nearly 100 scribal documents added to the Archive. Our overall plan for the scribal documents is described here.
