O Captain! My Captain!

The Walt Whitman Archive is an electronic research and teaching tool that sets out to make Whitman’s vast work, for the first time, easily and conveniently accessible to scholars, students, and general readers. Whitman, America’s most influential poet and one of the four or five most innovative and significant writers in United States history, is the most challenging of all American authors in terms of the textual difficulties his work presents. The Archive sets out to incorporate as much material as possible, drawing on the resources of libraries and collections from around the United States and around the world.
