When I Read the Book
When I read the book, the biography famous,
And is this then (said I) what the author calls a man’s life?
And so will some one when I am dead and gone write my life?
(As if any man really knew aught of my life,
Why even I myself often think know little or nothing of my real life,
Only a few hints, a few diffused faint clews and indirections
I seek for my own use to trace out here.)

Walt Whitman

“The prophet of progress,” “a public spokesman of the masses,” “sociable and gregarious, a traveler,” “an observer,” a democrat, metaphysicist, patriot, creative genius… Who really was Walt Whitman? How did it happen that he can be called so many names and what in his life gives the reason to describe him like that? Answers suggested by me to these and many other questions can be found in this article.
