Analysis and comments on To a Certain Cantatrice. by Walt Whitman

Comment 1 of 1, added on May 28th, 2008 at 7:27 AM.

I read this poem and was fascinated for it at the age of 14 of 15, almost
thirty years ago. I learned it by heart, in Spanish language, and never
forgoten. Now I have come across it in english and I see that is much more
impressive in original language.
For me, it is a kind of Declaration of Intention in which Art and Social
Progress, Music and Politics are set at the same level of influence in
human society and at least of equal importance. What do you think?
