Notes
Schele de Vere was the Professor of Modern Languages at the University of Virginia.

Schele De Vere’s upbringing, education, and social status could not
have been more different from Whitman’s, their philosophical interests
overlapped on a striking number of topics. Both shared a keen interest
in the American idiom (Schele de Vere was the first academic to teach
classes on it), were fascinated by Eastern mythology,5 admired Darwin,
Humboldt, and the heroes of the American Revolution, and tried to fuse
a strict belief in natural law with spirituality.6 (See Figure 1.)
