Analysis and comments on Last Invocation, The. by Walt Whitman

Comment 1 of 1, added on September 5th, 2005 at 8:14 PM.

I'm a yr 12 english student, and I came across this poem by Walt Whitman. I
personally thought it is one of his finest pieces of work that I have read
so. I prefer poems around this length than those that go on and on, because
they're so descriptive, yet so powerful at the same time. It's a pity that
Walt is not around today to write about society.

What I really liked about 'The Last Invocation' was how Walt ended the poem
with such meaningful words (tenderly- be not impatient). He's telling us
that if we approach things gently and be patient things will come.
