Specimen Days and CollectBook - 1888
Specimen Days offers a powerful example of Whitman's ability to produce masterful prose works. Inspired by his times visiting war hospitals and injured soldiers during the American Civil War, the volume provides glimpses into war life as well as Whitman's personal philosophies. Appended to this volume is the poet's Collect, a series of jottings Whitman collected in his various notebooks, ranging from rhyming couplets and word definitions to names of acquaintances.
