American Experience: Walt Whitman

2008 NR

The world knows Walt Whitman as one of America's most influential poets. This "American Experience" documentary reveals that Whitman rose from working-class roots and labored as a newspaper reporter before penning his seminal work, Leaves of Grass. Constantly seeking approval for his literary efforts, Whitman was alternately acclaimed and reviled for the daring sexual overtones he employed.
