My Celebrity Relations

WHITMAN, Walt [1819-1892] -- American poet

Relationship to me: 4C5
WHITMAN family Outline Descent Tree(s) ODT
Contents:

Was variously an office boy, printer's devil, schoolteacher, typesetter and journalist. He served as a hospital nurse during the Civil War [1862-1864], which experience much affected him. Published Leaves of Grass [1855], subsequently revised in many editions, to unfavorable reviews. Appreciation of his genius came slowly* — except in his own mind; He knew he was a genius long before anyone else figured it out.  -30-

Footnotes

* It is really a myth that recognition came slowly. Early reviews were generally favorable. Walt himself perpetuated the idea of his struggle for recognition.
