    I'm doing a school assignment on Walt Whitman. I need 3 credible sources, and was wondering if I could get some help.

    Seminal poet, way ahead of his time: he's still, I think, the quintessential American poet, full of many bravado & generosity. The extrovert soul brother to Dickenson's brisk introversion.

    The greatest of all time.

    The poet that cannot be replaced, even by Shakespeare, because he is different, his poems are different, always inspiring

Best Poem of Walt Whitman

O Captain! My Captain!


O CAPTAIN! my Captain! our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won;
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.


O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up--for you the flag is flung--for you the bugle trills; 10
For you bouquets and ...

Read the full of O Captain! My Captain!

Portals

WHAT are those of the known, but to ascend and enter the Unknown?
And what are those of life, but for Death?
