Professor Seger provides a clear and crisp overview of Leaves of Grass. The lecture is organized around several themes that Whitman is influenced by and is supported by placing him and his work in the historical context of the mid to late 19th century. Illustrations are from the period and reinforce the discussion.

I got a real incite into whitman and I think I know now how to really READ him! thank you, Maria!! I've always been fscinTED WITH HIS POEMS I BUT NEVER TOOK THE TIME TO SLOW DOWN AND SAVOR HIIM!Sorry about the caps!
I read The Leaves of Grass in high school but Maria's seminar on Walt Whitman gave me a better understanding of Walt Whitman's entire body of work and the importance of his legacy. Maria is a distinguished scholar - her seminars are filled with thought provoking, and insightful observations. Outstanding in every way!
Dr. Seger is very knowledgable about her subjects and she always presents her material in a very well-structured manner and with lots of charm and enthusiasm. She really brought Walt Whitman to life for me. I enjoyed this seminar very much and will sign-up for more of her seminars and courses.
