Broad Perspective

While I understand this heated debate on what Whitman, himself, was
thinking while writing this poem, isn't it true that poetry, and all forms
of writing, are personal? Isn't writing about the reader and what he/she
gains from what they read? Nevermind what the author was thinking, it's
about what YOU get out of it. Otherwise, writing would not be published.

Couldn't it be about his brother, Jeff? He and his brother traveled to New
Orleans together, and it took them a few months to get there. Although Walt
Whitman was homosexual, this was the first thing that came to my mind.

i love this poem. regardless of "sexuality" issues, it is agreat poem. it
saddens me though that some people would be so arrogent about it. walt
whitman was a AMAZING writer! and definitly an insperation.

now in terms of sexuality. he is still amazing. to have done what he did in
the time he was alive would have taken much courage and i know he still
inspires people in that way to this day.

so i must say i definitly understand this poem and i most certainly love
it. it touches bases.
