Walt Whitman: Where the Future Becomes Present, now available from University of Iowa Press, features 10 essays originally delivered on TCNJ’s campus in 2005 during Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass: The Sesquicentennial Symposium. The book was coedited by David Blake, associate professor of English, and Michael Robertson, professor of English, both of whom organized the 2005 event. “The book is a wonderful testament to all that TCNJ did for Whitman studies during the sesquicentennial of Leaves of Grass,” said Blake.
Whitman scholarship is thriving at TCNJ thanks to Blake and Robertson. In addition to editing Where the Future Becomes Present, both professors recently published their own books on Whitman. Click here to read more about these works.
