Revolutionary and far ahead of his time, Walt Whitman published his first book of poetry, Leaves of Grass, in 1855. The preface to the 1855 edition of his poems is an important work in its own right: the power of his prose is equal to that of his poetry. Moreover, in Whitman's Preface, his expression of his theory of American literature and American writers, namely poets, continues to influence modern literature.
