    Whitman, Walt

    Walt Whitman (1819-1892) is now regarded as one of America’s greatest poets, although largely unregarded in his lifetime. His collection, Leaves of Grass, was originally a self-published pamphlet of twelve poems which he expanded and revised frequently over his lifetime. A teacher and journalist, he was dedicated in later life to visiting the wounded of the Civil War, experience captured in his collection Drum Taps (1865).
