Discussions Discussion Modern Poetry
Bert Breton, Nov. 5, 2011

Modern [and very controversial] for his time, Walt Whitman lived in Washington, DC from 1863 to 1873. He arrived to search for his brother George, reportedly wounded in the fighting around Fredericksburg, VA. His original intention to stay two weeks stretched into ten years. While in Washington, DC Whitman created some of his most memorable works. During this period he wrote Drum-Taps, Democratic Vistas, and Passage to India. Here, John Graham presents “Democratic Vistas” by Walt Whitman.
