Quick Reference

Discursive work by Whitman, the second volume of a collected edition (1876) whose first volume was Leaves of Grass. The title suggests not only the blending of prose and verse, but also the combination of thoughts on American politics and literature with realistic and imaginative speculations on death and immortality. Two Rivulets incorporates Democratic Vistas (1871) and Memoranda During the War (1875) as prose, and its poetry includes the previous pamphlets As a Strong Bird on Pinions Free (1872) and Passage to India (1871), a group of “Centennial Songs,” and other fugitive writings.
