Proof, as if needed, that we absorb Whitman (still) as much as he absorbed his culture. With thanks to Mark Nowak for passing along this blog post On the Twittification of Whitman.
Speaking of Twitter–in reference to Democractic Vistas. Is ‘twitter’ the problem of the flatulent culture and literature he criticizes, or possibly part of its democratic future? Whitman uses the term ‘idiocracy’; do we have that now, only call it ‘mediacracy’?
