Rediscovered works by Whitman
A PhD candidate, Zachary Turpin, made headlines in 2016 and again this year when he announced the discovery of two long-forgotten works by Walt Whitman: a series of newspaper articles entitled “Manly Health and Training” and a short novel, The Life and Adventures of Jack Engle: an Auto-Biography.
Both texts were recently published in the journal The Walt Whitman Quarterly Review as well as in monograph form, and are now available to researchers in the Walt Whitman Collection at BYU:
