Hi, I am working on an assignment for english that is to compare the two
poets, Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson. I am not just to state the
obvious; Dickenson is confined and Whitman was out experiencing nature. I
am supposed to find deeper meaning into the poetry and contrast and
compare. If anyone has ideas to help me please, please e-mail me.

Whitman man a good and also boring man. This poem is really boring and also
has a very good facts about the poeple. Look at America now! How is it! the
poem has nothing antmore for someone to read cause it's pointless!

When I read this poem, I find Whitman only thought of the people who did
physical labour. Did they represent all Americans?

This poem is okay to me.I think it just means that everybody is important
in America. Woopie!

I liked this poem because it talks about all the hard woking people
all over America. He says that if everybody had a song they would all be
different. I also like it because he is talking about the importance of the
common people.

" I Hear America Singing"
I think that it represents how he felt about America back then and
how it was as happy as can be. These days though I don't think the poem
would quite fit with the way America is. I say that because the people of
America are not always happy with what they do and most jobs don't pay
enough. Also our economy is all screwed up.

In "I Hear America Singing" Whitman says that everyone has his or her
own life style. He kind of says that we are all unique but Americans too.I
think this poem is nice but really don't like it .

"I Hear America Singing" has a meaning for saying that everybody has
there own style."Each singing what belongs to her, and to none else."Is
saying that everybody is different.You don't have to be someone your not to
impress another person, but to just be yourself and not someone your not.

In "I Hear America Singing" the poet shows songs that different types
of people form one song of America. It also shows that these types of
poems are what America is known for. We are all different but we are
Americans too.

In the poem it says that each person is singing their own song. I
think this poem represents that everyone is different in their own way and
were not the same. It also probably represents that they were happy to be
an American.
