America's first "poet of democracy"

(18195-1892)

Leaves of Grass
Whitman wrote in the preface to the 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass, "The proof of a poet is that his country absorbs him as affectionately as he has absorbed it."

Free verse (自由体诗)
A fluid form which conforms to no set rules of traditional versification. The free in free verse refers to the freedom from fixed patterns of meter and rhyme, but writers of free verse employ familiar poetic devices such as assonance, alliteration, imagery, caesura, figures of speech, etc., and their rhythmic effects are dependent on the syllabic cadences emerging from the text. The term is often uesd in its French language form, vers libre.

My reflection
each person is important to socisity. each person is needed for the various trades that make the country run smoothly.

uplifting and positive. each person is unique, but united .
freedom

theme
? From urban to rural, from sea to land, creative labor exists everywhere, which is the core of American dream. ? The poem consists of Whiteman’s all concepts of modern people and life : singing for the flourishing and democratic America, showing the dignity and greatness of the workers, full of optimistic attitudes to life and the world.

My reflection
the poet envisions a country of people working for the greater good of mankind. the pure sensuousness, the direct physicality of these words and images both shocked and liberated his audiences.
Whitman gave many otherwise overlooked people, genders and groups not only a melody, but he gave America its own, unique song in the world.
