    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.

  • Jared Washburn (2/14/2017 7:35:00 AM)

    The greatest of all time.

  • Muzahidul Reza Muzahidul Reza (11/2/2016 2:09:00 PM)

    One of the successful poets in his time and even at present whose writings affect many readers of his writings.....

  • Tapati Ray (4/5/2016 6:25:00 PM)

    I like his versatility.

  • Sam Mohammed (6/3/2015 3:21:00 AM)

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

    Dear Walt Whitman, I feel bliss when I read some of your poems.

    I do not agree that the proof of being a good poet comes with admirations, or esteem shown by his /her counry. Walt was lucky America needed desperately to find a new voice - and he was there - and what a voice - though only on the page, for he was soft spoken. But when you think of all the unrecognized artists of the past, who today are considered geniuses it makes you think. Whatever happens, it seems it's only the few who count in the final run, and you can only hope posthumously you may make the grade of what one calls 'Great'. Panmelys

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!


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