A Concise Biography.
First known for his controversial book of poetry, Leaves of Grass, Walt Whitman was thought to be vulgar and immoral. Whitman was unorthodox in form as well as content. In his poetry, the line was a rhythmical unit and meter was disregarded, but most of his poems achieved a musical effect. His major themes included the sacredness of the self, the beauty of death, the quality of all people, the love of comrades, and the immortality of the soul. This program explores his life and major works.

"...not only presents a factual outline of the writers lives, but also conveys a clear visual picture of the social and historical background to their writing.  The Good Book Guide

Editor's Note
The quintessential American poet, Walt Whitman is best known for such works as "Leaves of Grass," "O Captain! My Captain!" and "Song of the Open Road." A review of his underappreciated life and career.

Plot Summary
"Famous Authors" examines the men and women behind the words that brought them literary kudos.| In "Walt Whitman," viewers learn how the unorthodox poet garnered acclaim, survived a stroke, taught in the Northeast, and attracted many disciples. Through works such as "Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking" and the auspicious "Song of Myself" Whitman espoused his philosophy and provocative beliefs -- egalitarianism, the sanctity of self, the immortality of the individual soul, and grace in death. His work, in turn, incited criticism as much as it drew favorable reaction.
