Product Description:

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 Synopsis:

"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.
