In Whitman’s Neighborhood

My sincere thanks to Prof. Tyler Hoffman at Rutgers University-Camden for inviting me to speak to his Whitman class today. It was my first Whitman-related event. Very enjoyable.


I received a special thrill when I was given the chance to ogle the Nick Virgilio Archive. So much of his wonderful haiku work has yet to be read. I suspect his posthumous stature will rise in the coming decades.
