Meditations of Walt Whitman

ISBN: 9781458781840
Release Date: 2010-07-09
Genre:

In revising Leaves of Grass for its 1856 edition, Walt Whitman sacrificed the large pages of the first edition, meant to accommodate his long lines of verse, for smaller pages, with the idea that the reader would be able to enjoy the ''ideal pleasure''; ''to put a book in your pocket and off to the seashore or the forest.'' It is with this same ideal in mind that Chris Highland has assembled the fourth book in the successful Meditations series, Meditations of Walt Whitman, a pocket-sized compendium of passages from Leaves of Grass. Whitman's lifelong endeavor, Leaves of Grass, is the culmination of his poetic work, published first in 1855, and constantly revised until its last edition in 1881, eleven years before his death. In Meditations of Walt Whitman, passages from Leaves of Grass are paired with the words of a variety of historical and contemporary thinkers, such as Margaret Fuller, Friedrich Nietzsche, Jane Goodall, Mark Twain, Marc Chagall, Helen Keller, Buddha, Dante, and Bhagavad Gita.

Das Lebensglück der Menschen hängt untrennbar mit dem Wohlergehen der Erde zusammen: Nur auf einem gesunden Planeten können wir gesund leben. Thich Nhat Hanh zeigt, wie eng Denken und Handeln der Menschen mit dem Zustand der Erde verbunden sind.

Die Vorstellung, dass Mensch und Umwelt getrennt sind, wird aufgegeben und ein Gefühl der Liebe und Verbundenheit mit dem großen Ganzen gefördert.
