Walt Whitman was the most innovative and influential poet of the nineteenth century. His examination of the world around him -- from the intimate to the cosmic -- transcends time and place. His verse, though seemingly personal, lends a voice to the entire human race that speaks for universal harmony, universal love. This beautiful sampling of Whitman's work offers a glimpse into his themes of love for country, love for others, and deepening our understanding of self. Viewing Whitman as a mystic poet illuminates the influences of spirituality, music, and nature that made his poems beloved by people of all faiths and nationalities.
