Short Biography of Walt Whitman

 Q:   Ask a Question about Short Biography of Walt Whitman       
Walter Whitman (1819-1892) was an American poet who published Leaves of Grass in 1855, which contains the symbolic "Song of Myself", it used unconventional free verse (with no rhyme or regular rhythm) and scandalized the public by its frank celebration of sexuality.

Born in West Hill, New York, as a young man Whitman worked as a printer, teacher, and journalist. In 1865 he published Drum-Taps, a volume inspired by his work as an army nurse during the Civil War.

He also wrote an elegy on Abraham Lincoln, "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd". He preached a US vision of individual freedom and human brotherhood.
