Walt Whitman is Americaa€™s world poeta€”a latter-day successor to Homer, Virgil, Dante, and Shakespeare. Along with Emily Dickinson, Whitman is regarded as one of Americaa€™s most significant nineteenth century poets.
In the American civil war period, Whitman worked as an unofficial nurse, helping the Northern and Southern wounded soldiers in the army hospitals in Washington. Whitman’s poetry makes the reader feel that the power of imagination set in motion is an essential essence that belongs not to one specific group of people or of one race but to all races. QuotesIf one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Modern America has a particular more recent history of often being built on the tribal lands of native Americans tens of thousands of years older than the last four centuries of European/African Americans who now inhabit that territory who walk on lands where the spirits of the past left their invisible mark.
Critics and readers alike, however, found both Whitmana€™s style and subject matter unnerving.
To help support the family, Whitman stopped school at age eleven and started working as a printer. In 1885, he published the Leaves of Grass which he kept revising and republishing throughout his lifetime.


Offering his services as a volunteer to help dress wounds of war victims says a lot about his character. This monumental work chanted praises to the body as well as to the soul, and found beauty and reassurance even in death. He was delighted with the printed word and read the likes of Shakespeare, Homer and the stories of the bible as if innately knowing that reading was his ticket to becoming a poet. The only requirement to do so is to study mankind with some feeling, some passion, some love (and even hate) for humanity. After the war, he worked as a clerk in the Indian Bureau of the department of interior from which he was dismissed due to the fact that his book, Leaves of Grass, was seen as an immoral book. Surely one thing that is apparent of Whitman’s poetry is the sense and desire to unite humanity as one. This shows that he was a poet ahead of his times, a poet of the ages, one who saw humanity as one. He spent his last years in Camden, New Jersey, and never fell into oblivion or disappeared out of the public eye. Soon he turns his full attention to journalism and becomes an editor of some papers in New York. Even though he was more than often misunderstood, he never stopped painting his poetic canvas with universal images that spoke for humanity.


He also gets acquainted with the french language (creole) spoken there hence the reason of some french words in his poetry.
He returns to Brooklyn in 1848 and begins to work on his poetry, Leaves of Grass, which is filled with the rhythm of music. In fact he believed music to be universal, an infinite inspiration that helped him compose some of the greatest American poems. His efforts and fruits took thirty years to complete and shine brightly in Leaves of Grass. Observe, absorb, imagine, learn and unleash the power of imagination for you and for all with the pure intention to reach, to touch, to inspire with grace and love.
With his poetry, Whitman has achieved that and more and has made America proud to have had one like him once upon a time. Most of the American poets, philosophers and writers such as Stevens, Eliot, Emerson, Twain, Melville and Faulkner owe a lot to Whitman.
