Eric, what do you mean his "lyrics" have no rhythm? The poem is iambic--you
trite, insipid, numb shit. It also uses repetition of words and ideas in a
way that is undeniably rhythmic. I can only conclude YOU have no rhythm,
nor any taste. Please refrain from lying about a man in whose glorious
shadow you are not even an atomic little dust mite.

Eric is right about Whitman being pessimistic but I sure don't agre that he
is generalistic and assumptuous. I believe Whitman's style seemingly simple
but the content is rich and the meanings to be derived profound. I thinkk
being the sensitive modern American that he was there was a lot to be
pessimistic about during his time! He was ahead of his time..

He gives serious words a comical twist. Try not to analyze it, just
appreciate the point he is making. The fact he is expressing his true,
political point does indeed make him an "All-American" Poet, Eric....

Just because it has no rhythm dosen't mean any thing. I think that his
poems are great, and if you would just read his poems slowly and more than
once; you wouldn't think his poems are so complicated Eric!!

In general Walt Whitman is too general, assumptuous and pessimistic. His
lyrics are lacking in any real rhythm and try to complicate overly simple
lyrics. He is truly an all-american poet.
