the poet talks to the historian as if he stands face to face with him by
using the pronoun "you".he does not speak to a specific historian, but to
all the historians.withman has a philosophical point of view as he begins
by saying "you".whitman tells the historian that "you" whose job is to talk
about thing that happened in the past.his job is very simple and nonsense
as he took the outward that does not need any one to explain.the historian
talks about people of politics and rulers and priests.these people have a
higher position in the society.whitman does not write his poetry for those
people, but write it for the common.the books of the historians are full of
the achievements of men of politics and rulers, but the poet is interested
in the commnon people.whitman is very proud of him self as a poet and talks
about hidden things.the poet clarifies thing to us, but the historian does
not clarify it as the poet talks about emotions, feeling, and passions.the
poet talks about the past, understands the present, and appreciate the
future. so, the poet can tell us about the future through a combination of
the past and the present and by helping us to learn lessons from past
experience.the historian's job is limited, but the poet job is more
comprehensive.the poet can give us a clarify idea about the future by
joining the past to the present.
