    Whitman, Walt
    Walt Whitman was born in Huntington, Long Island on May 31, 1819, the second of nine children, to Louisa and Walter Sr., working-class parents who were barely literate. Forced by economic circumstances, his father, a house-builder by trade, moved the family to Brooklyn. Walt abandoned his formal education at an early age to contribute to the family finances. He began learning the printer?¢s trade and became self-taught, reading the works of Homer, Dante, Shakespeare, Scott and The Bible.
    After working in the newspaper business, Whitman taught school in the Long Island area, but found that he did not enjoy it. He moved back to the city and became a successful editor for several New York and Brooklyn papers. He also wrote for a local press in New Orleans, where he witnessed the distasteful activities of an open slave market. The experience having turned Whitman into a staunch abolitionist, he published a ?¢free-soil?¢?? newspaper upon his return to New York and became active in the local Democratic party. He also developed a passion for music and the opera, which had a noticeably significant effect on his writing; His references to song and harmony are numerous in Leaves of Grass

A humanist , he was a part of the transition between transcendentalism and realism , incorporating both views in his works. Whitman is among the most influential poets in the American canon, often called the father of free verse His work was very controversial in its time, particularly his poetry collection Leaves of Grass , which was described as obscene for its overt sexuality. Born on Long Island , Whitman worked as a journalist, a teacher, a government clerk, and – in addition to publishing his poetry – was a volunteer nurse during the American Civil War . Early in his career, he also produced a temperance novel, Franklin Evans (1842). Whitman's major work, Leaves of Grass , was first published in 1855 with his own money. The work was an attempt at reaching out to the common person with an American epic . He continued expanding and revising it until his death in 1892.

    Early life.
    Walt Whitman was born into a family that settled in North America in the first half of the 17th century. His ancestry was typical of the region: his mother, Louisa Van Velsor, was Dutch, and his father, Walter Whitman, was of English descent. They were simple farm people, with little formal education. The Whitman family had at one time owned a large tract of land, but it was so diminished by the time Walt was born that his father had taken up carpentering, though the family still lived on a small section of the ancestral estate. In 1823 Walter Whitman, Sr., moved his growing family to Brooklyn, which was enjoying a boom. There he speculated in real estate and built cheap houses for artisans, but he was a poor manager and had difficulty in providing for his family, which increased to nine children. Walt, the second child, attended public school in Brooklyn, began working at the age of 12, and learned the printing trade. He was employed as a printer in Brooklyn and New York City, taught in country schools on Long Island, and became a journalist. At the age of 23 he edited a daily newspaper in New York, and in 1846 he became editor of the

    Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892)
    Walt Whitman was born on May 31, 1819, on the West Hills of Long Island, New York. His mother, Louisa Van Velsor, of Dutch descent and Quaker faith, whom he adored, was barely literate. She never read his poetry, but gave him unconditional love. His father of English lineage, was a carpenter and builder of houses, and a stern disciplinarian. His main claim to fame was his friendship with Tom Paine, whose pamphlet Common Sense (1776), urging the colonists to throw off English domination was in his sparse library. It is doubtful that his father read any of his son's poetry, or would have understood it if he had. The senior Walt was too burdened with the struggle to support his ever-growing family of nine children, four of whom were handicapped. Young Walt, the second of nine, was withdrawn from public school at the age of eleven to help support the family. At the age of twelve he started to learn the printer's trade, and fell in love with the written and printed word. He was mainly self-taught. He read voraciously, and became acquainted with Homer, Dante, Shakespeare and Scott early in life. He knew the Bible thoroughly, and as a God-intoxicated poet, desired to inaugurate a religion uniting all of humanity in bonds of friendship. In 1836, at the age of 17, he began his career as an innovative teacher in the one-room school houses of Long Island. He permitted his students to call him by his first name, and devised learning games for them in arithmetic and spelling. He continued to teach school until 1841, when he turned to journalism as a full-time career. He soon became editor for a number of Brooklyn and New York papers. From 1846 to 1847 Whitman was the editor of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. Whitman went to New Orleans in 1848, where he was editor for a brief time of the "New Orleans Crescent". In that city he had become fascinated with the French language. Many of his poems contain words of French derivation. It was in New Orleans that he experienced at first hand the viciousness of slavery in the slave markets of that city.

    Whitman is considered to be one of the United States' greatest poets. Born near Long Island, he lived in New York for a time, and many of his poems celebrate the city and its' inhabitants. He worked as a writer, printer, editor, teacher, and even as a hospital aide during the Civil War. He was deeply interested in politics and examining democracy as a practice and an ideal. He traveled throughout the US and Europe, and he also visited Cuba . Some of his best-known works are his book of poems, Leaves of Grass (1855) and such individual poems as "Oh Captain! My Captain!" and "Song of the Open Road."Though dead before the start of the Spanish-American War, some of Whitman's writings reflect the national confidence and pride which led to enthusiasm for the war.

    Brief Bio
    Walt Whitman was an American poet and a son of Long Island. His collection of poems, "Leaves of Grass" was a continuing endeavor, growing from the original volume of 12 works first published in 1855 to an edition of over 300 works at the time of his death in 1892. The collection is considered one of the world's major literary works and stands as a revolutionary development in poetry: Walt's free verse and rhythmic innovations stand in marked contrast to the rigid rhyming and structural patterns formerly considered so essential to poetic expression. Walt was a firm believer in democracy and much in "Leaves of Grass" gives us a clear vision of his belief that American ideals might serve as an example to the world. He greatly admired Abraham Lincoln as an exponent of these ideals, and upon Lincoln's death he wrote, "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd". Lincoln died in April, and the blooming lilacs would not only remind him of the death of Lincoln, but also would serve as a metaphor for the eternal renewal of life. Although in the post Civil War period, he became somewhat disillusioned with the aggressive materialism and corruption of a rapidly changing, industrializing society, he maintained a firm belief that eventually ideals would triumph over greed. Whitman was a gregarious man who loved life, knew how to have a good time, and loved children and good company. His work is less a logical discourse than it is a spontaneous outpouring of emotion. It is from emotion that it derives its power. At times, Whitman reached not for cosmic, transcendental levels, but dealt with the elemental and intimate on a purely emotional level. His bold feelings about love and sexuality as evidenced in such poems as "A Woman Waits for Me" and "Once I Walked Through a Populous City" found in "Children of Adam" are absolutely remarkable in the context of the Victorian society in which he lived.
