DEDICATION

This site is dedicated to my dear departed friend Roger Asselineau (O’ Captain! my Captain!), Professor Emeritus, Department of Letters & Literature at the University of Paris, the Sorbonne, whose life work on Walt Whitman (“The Evolution Of Walt Whitman,” 800 pages, University of Iowa Press) could never be eclipsed in its insightfulness. Roger was my greatest supporter and will always be my poetic mentor. He is now with his beloved wife Paule, but his superb poetry can still be read and enjoyed in “Poesies Incomplete” (by Le Meridien in Paris) and “Miettes Et Miracles” (by Saint-German-Des-Pres in Paris).

Roger's Walt Whitman Collection is now permanently held at the Cushing Library at Texas A&M.
