Text inside book taken from Whitman's "Song of Myself":
I am the poet of the Body and I am the poet of the Soul,
The pleasures of heaven are with me and the pains of hell are
The first I graft and increase upon myself, the latter I translate
into a new tongue.
I am the poet of the woman the same as the man,
And I say it is as great to be a woman as to be a man,
And I say there is nothing greater than the mother of men.
