Walt Whitman

Walt Whitman Œuvres principales Biographie[modifier | modifier le code] Whitman naquit le dans une ferme près de l'actuelle South Huntington, Long Island. Il fut le deuxième de neuf enfants. Après deux ans d'apprentissage, Whitman se rendit à New York pour y travailler dans différents ateliers d'imprimerie. Les années 1840 virent les premiers fruits de son long travail sur les mots, avec la publication d'un certain nombre de nouvelles à partir de 1841 et du roman Franklin Evans publié à New York un an plus tard, qui faisait partie du mouvement en faveur de la tempérance.

La première édition de Leaves of Grass fut auto-publiée en 1855, l'année même où le père de Whitman rendit l'âme. Après la guerre de Sécession, Walt Whitman fut engagé au Department of the Interior (ministère de l'intérieur) en tant que clerc. À sa septième édition en 1881, le recueil de poèmes s'était épaissi. Repères chronologiques[modifier | modifier le code] Walt Whitman, Wendell Barry, and the Workings of an Agrarian Poet. As we begin to look at the national and international poets and writers inspired by Walt Whitman, it has become even more clear to me the vast influence cast by Walt Whitman upon 19th and 20th century literature.

Walt Whitman, Wendell Barry, and the Workings of an Agrarian Poet

Since I started taking this class I have found bits and pieces of Whitman throughout my readings. Whether these writers are actually inspired by Whitman, of if Professor Vander Zee has just made me so paranoid about looking for Whitman references that I see them in my sleep, I may never know; however, while I was reading one of my favorite poets, Wendell Berry, I could not help but be overcome by the Whitmanian style of his poems. (Not to mention the similarity in dress as seen in the pictures above) In a sense, I feel as if Berry, a contemporary Agrarian poet who still lives on his farm in Kentucky, embodies Whitman’s cry for the purpose of the American Poet. In the preface to Leaves of Grass, Whitman states: Walt. Dead Poets Society. Plot[edit] Neil Perry, Todd Anderson, Knox Overstreet, Charlie Dalton, Richard Cameron, Steven Meeks, and Gerard Pitts are senior students of the Welton Academy, an elite prep school, whose ethos is defined by the headmaster Gale Nolan as "tradition, honor, discipline and excellence".

The teaching methods of their new English teacher, John Keating, are unorthodox by Welton standards, including whistling the 1812 Overture and taking them out of the classroom to focus on the idea of carpe diem. He tells the students that they may call him "O Captain! My Captain! ," in reference to a Walt Whitman poem, if they feel daring. Due to self-consciousness, Todd fails to complete a writing assignment and Keating takes him through an exercise in self-expression, realizing the potential he possesses. At the request of Neil's parents, the headmaster launches an investigation. Cast[edit] Reception[edit] Roger Ebert's review was mixed, two out of four stars.
