texas graduate student discovers a walt whitman novel lost for more than 150 yea


for a month, zachary turpin “would sit there night after night, buzzing.”the graduate student at the university of houston had spent the past few years digging through the digitized papers of american writer walt whitman, which contain 40 to 50 years worth of his personal notes. “he was more or less a hoarder,” turpin told the washington post during a phone interview.for the unfamiliar, whitman (1819-1892) was one the most influential poets included in the american canon. in the 1850s he popularized free verse with his magnum opus “leaves of grass,” which includes the famous line “i contain multitudes.” many call him the “father of free verse.” before his life as a poet, the new yorker worked as a schoolteacher, journalist and novelist.his mission was to find any undiscovered works by whit

zachary turpin, a university of houston doctoral candidate, discovers walt whitm


houston -- zachary turpin was propped up in bed with his laptop in may, his wife and newborn son sleeping beside him, when he made a discovery that stands to rock the literary world. there on his screen, he saw a small ad in an 1852 newspaper. the ad promised “a rich revelation:” a six-installment piece of fiction called “life and adventures of jack engle” was coming soon to the sunday dispatch, a three-penny weekly published in manhattan. the houston chronicle reports the short novel, like the newspaper that published it, was all but lost to the ages. but the author, turpin believed, was walt whitman, one of america’s best-known and most beloved poets. now, turpin, a 33-year-old doctoral candidate in english at the university of houston, has found the novel itself -- a discovery that upen






m ive lava stream exploding into ocean in hawaii


honolulu — a dramatic "firehose" stream of molten lava continued to shoot out of a sea cliff wednesday on hawaii island, splashing into the pacific ocean below and exploding upon impact.the m ive kilauea flow is coming from a lava tube at the kamokuna ocean entry on the southeast side of the big island. the lava is gushing from a tube that was exposed when a huge, 26-acre lava delta collapsed into the ocean at the site on new year's eve. the collapse of the newly formed land triggered m ive explosions and giant waves in the area.the lava stream, dubbed a "firehose" flow because it shoots lava outward from the source, started out as a drizzle coming down the sea cliffs after the new year collapse, but has recently increased in intensity. the molten lava is now arching out and falling about






walt whitman novel lost for 165 years holds clues to 'leaves of grass'


readers who picked up the new york times on march 13, 1852, might have seen a small advertisement on page 3 for a serial tale set to begin the next day in a rival newspaper."a rich revelation," the ad began, teasing a rollicking tale touching on "the manners and morals of boarding houses, some scenes from church history, operations in wall-st.," and "graphic sketches of men and women" (presented, fear not, with "explanations necessary to properly understand what it is all about").it was a less than tantalizing brew, perhaps. the story, which was never reviewed or reprinted, appears to have sunk like a stone.but now comes another rich revelation: the anonymously published tale was nothing less than a complete novel by walt whitman.the 36,000-word "life and adventures of jack engle," which w
