By M. Jimmie Killingsworth
Killingsworth demonstrates that Whitman's "poetry of the physique" derives its radical energy from the transformation of traditional attitudes towards sexuality, conventional poetics, and conservative politics. The sexual relation, with its promise of solidarity, love, equality, interpenetration, and productiveness for companions, turns into a metaphor for all political and social relationships, together with that of poet and reader. The impact of the poems is protopolitical, an changing of cognizance concerning the body's relation to different our bodies, a moving of the kinds of information that foretells political action.
Killingsworth strains the interaction in Whitman's poetry among sexual and textual topics that derive from Whitman's political reaction to the historic turbulence of mid-century the US. He describes a sophisticated shift in Whitman's prose writings on poetics, which flip from a view of poetry within the early 1850s as morally and politically efficacious to a chastened romanticism within the postwar years that frees the poet from accountability for the area open air his poems.
Later versions of Leaves of Grass are marked through the poet's planned repression of erotic issues in prefer of a depoliticized aestheticism that perspectives paintings now not as a motivator of political and ethical motion yet as an artifact embodying the soul of the genius.
