I studied this poem in my english class and it was the best i've ever read.
As you all should know by know, this poem was written by Walt Whitman
himself. Some background checks on this guy is that he writes up new
things. He creats a new rythm and language for liteature. He is one of the
america's greatest poems because his love for his country and democracy is
what he wrotes about. I hope that I have helped you in some way. Thanks....

I'm just an email away if you need more info.
