Genius, greatest American poet.

>>3003440 No one's really sure. It seems fairly certain that he at least had homosexual desires, and probably a few homosexual encounters, but he was not really the kind of guy who had a lot of sex

walt whitman was a genius. read all of his work and rejoice for you will be a better person for it. start with 'noiseless, patient spider' then read 'leaves of grass'

Brilliant poet but a bit of a degenerate IRL. And sort of a self-congratulatory ass, it seems. But Leaves of Grass is absolutely fantastic. Required reading if you're American.

We Two Boys Together Clinging We two boys together clinging, One the other never leaving, Up and down the roads going—North and South excursions making, Power enjoying—elbows stretching—fingers clutching, Arm’d and fearless—eating, drinking, sleeping, loving, No law less than ourselves owning—sailing, soldiering, thieving, threatening, Misers, menials, priests alarming—air breathing, water drinking, on the turf or the sea-beach dancing, Cities wrenching, ease scorning, statutes mocking, feebleness chasing, Fulfilling our foray. favorite poem

>>3003689 >Required reading if you're American. Why if you're an american, you parochial twat? Whitman is required reading for anyone who's interested in poetry. And I don't even really like his work much.

Fuck Whitman. Read O'Hara instead.

>>3003738 You seem uncertain of the definition of the word "political". Perhaps you should consult a dictionary. And then fuck off.
