DARK MONDAY: Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman
Location: Kulturzentrum Merlin, Augustenstraße 72
Entry fee: 5 euros
The poetry of Walt Whitman is the cornerstone of modern American verse and his influence is still evident today. First published in 1855, Leaves of Grass was a revolutionary manifesto declaring America’s independence from European cultural domination. Walt Whitman’s rhapsodic free verse broke radically with poetic tradition. It was poetry about America, its democracy, its people, and its hope.
