“Looking with side-curved head curious what will come next”
This chapter examines lists in the works of Whitman. It discusses how no writer has made the practice of listing as integral to his or her creative work as Whitman did in the poetry of Leaves of Grass. Indeed, no one has experimented so much with the form as Whitman; no one has even approximated his efforts to create a poetics of listing.
