For Tuesday (2/14)

You’ll want to do three things for Tuesday:

1) look at Whitman’s personal copy of the 1860 edition of Leaves of Grass, known as the “blue book.”  In this copy, you’ll find a plethora of Whitman’s own notes, annotations, and revisions.  Browse through the book, paying special attention to the early pages and to his notes on “Song of Myself.”  Make a few notes on a couple of interesting things you notice about the blue book.  (You don’t have to blog these – – just jot them down for class on Thursday.)

2) don’t forget to browse through and comment on one of Whitman’s entries in Specimen Days.

3) you want to YouTube 15 or so lines from “Song of Myself” and post your video by Tuesday afternoon.  How do I YouTube a poem?  Click here.
