A true classic for every library. Whitman is an acclaimed American poet whose insights on nature and everyday life bring the lyric beauty of romanticism to reality. With panoramic descriptions rich with imagination, many of Whitman's poems are brilliant. Even if you are not keen on poetry, this book is worth reading. Limit yourself to a poem a day, the more to savor and contemplate.
