Novel-T is crazy about Walt Whitman. We're so crazy for Whitman, in fact, that we offer two Walt Whitman t-shirts: our standard Walt Whitman jersey and our Walt's With Me special edition tee shirt.
Whitman is taught less and less in high schools, so fewer readers are encountering him these days. If you don't know where to start, consider "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" and "Song of Myself." No matter how many times we've done it, reading those poems always puts us in a good mood.
We're also put in a good mood when we discover other folks that are ecstatic about Walt Whitman. Memorably, about a year ago we were tuned in to the first episode of the Discovery Channel's "Brewmasters" show and were delighted to see Dogfish Head's Sam Calagione sporting a Whitman jersey. Cheers, Sam. And cheers to you, too, Walt!
