    For such the expression of the American poet is to be transcendant and new. If he breathes into any thing that was before thought small it dilates with the grandeur and life of the universe. He is a seer. But I, with mournful tread, Walk the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead. I can even visualize what a version with current events may look. Do you think matter has cohered together from its diffuse float, and the soil is on the surface, and water runs and vegetation sprouts, For you only, and not for him and her?

    The edition is particularly notable for the inclusion of the two poems "Song of Myself" and "The Sleepers". Shall we stick by each other as long as we live? It is to be indirect and not direct or descriptive or epic. Men and women perceive the beauty well enough.

    Within there runs blood, The same old blood! To him the other continents arrive as contributions As if the opening of the western continent by discovery and what has transpired since in North and South America were less than the small theatre of the antique or the aimless sleepwalking of the middle ages! Biography provided by Stern, Jerome H. One critic has identified three major "thematic drifts" in Leaves of Grass: the period tofrom toand from to his death. His trust shall master the trust of everything he touches.

The edition included the notable Whitman poem "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry". Biography provided by Stern, Jerome H. I celebrate myself to celebrate every man and woman alive; I loosen the tongue that was tied in them, It begins to talk out of my mouth.

Shall we stick by each other as long as we live? The land and sea, the animals fishes and birds, the sky of heaven and the orbs, the forests mountains and rivers, are not small themes Who troubles himself about his ornaments or fluency is lost.

You will hardly know who I am or what I am, But I shall be good health to you nevertheless, And filter and fibre your blood. And if the body were not the Soul, what is the Soul? My Captain! I have also frequently told them that men in the Christian world are in such gross ignorance respecting Angels and Spirits as to suppose them to be minds without a form, or mere thoughts, of which they have no other idea than as something ethereal possessing a vital principle.

InWhitman became editor of the Brooklyn Eagle, a leading Democratic newspaper. I read the book eagerly, and perceived that its substantiality and power were still ahead of any eulogium with which it might have been commended to me—and, in fact, ahead of most attempts that could be made at verbal definition of them.

Do you suppose you have a right to a good sight, and he or she has no right to a sight? Writing in a new form of free verse, Whitman is one of the most influential modern American poets. There is that indescribable freshness and unconsciousness about an illiterate person that humbles and mocks the power of the noblest expressive genius.

The American poets are to enclose old and new for America is the race of races. I am a man who, sauntering along without fully stopped, turns a casual look upon you and then averts his face, Leaving it to you to prove and define it, Expecting the main things from you.

The largeness of nature or the nation were monstrous without a corresponding largeness and generosity of the spirit of the citizen. His mother, Louisa Van Velsor, of Dutch descent and Quaker faith, whom he adored, was barely literate.

The blue breadth over the inland sea of Virginia and Maryland and the sea off Massachusetts and Maine and over Manhattan bay and over Champlain and Erie and over Ontario and Huron and Michigan and Superior, and over the Texan and Mexican and Floridian and Cuban seas and over the seas off California and Oregon, is not tallied by the blue breadth of the waters below more than the breadth of above and below is tallied by him.

Was it doubted that those who corrupt their own bodies conceal themselves? Such poetry is not large but self-assured; it knows, as Whitman asserted, the amplitude of time and laughs at dissolution.

What the eyesight does to the rest he does to the rest. High up out of reach he stands turning a concentrated light And if the body does not do as much as the Soul? Of all mankind the great poet is the equable man. City of orgies, walks and joys, City whom that I have lived and sun in your midst will one day make you illustrious, Not the pageant of you, not your shifting tableaus, your spectacles, repay me, Not the interminable rows of your houses, nor the ships at the wharves, Nor the processions in the streets, nor the bright windows with goods in them, Nor to converse with learn'd persons, or bear my share in the soiree or feast; Not those, but as I pass O Manhattan, your frequent and swift flash of eyes offering me love, Offering response to my own - these repay me, Lovers, continual lovers, only repay me.

To him enter the essences of the real things and past and present events — of the enormous diversity of temperature and agriculture and mines — the tribes of red aborigines — the weatherbeaten vessels entering new ports or making landings on rocky coasts — the first settlements north or south — the rapid stature and muscle — the haughty defiance of 76, and the war and peace and formation of the constitution.Exploring Selected Poems of Walt Whitman and Maya Angelou By The We the People Book Club.
