Abstract

This thesis compares the first major published works of American poet Walt Whitman and German philosopher FriedrichNietzche--not as an exercisethat traces literacy borrowing but in order to show that Whitman's Leaves of Grass (1855 Edition) and Nietzsche's The Birth of Tragedy are akin in their descriptions of a kind of consciousness.
