Author: Babette Deutsch

“The United States are intended to overcome the great medieval history or to experience the most terrible failure”.

Walt Whitman (1819-1892) was a poet, essayist, journalist and humanist. His work falls within the context of the transition between Transcendentalism and Realism and he adds these two views to his work. Whitman is among the most influential writers in the American canon (he is considered the centre of this canon) and he has been called the father of free verse. His work was very controversial in that period, particularly his book Leaves of Grass (1855), which was described as obscene for its open sexuality. Whitman was the first poet who tries out with the possibility of the free verse using a simple language and close to the prose.
