Title: WALT WHITMAN
Movie ID: VT2354
Movie Number: 2354
Description: Profiling the Good Gray Poet.; Answering Ralph Waldo Emerson's call for a distinctly American poetry, Whitman (1819-1892) sought to break away form European conventions. His earthy language, innovative meters and prophetic images were used to convey broad themes of sexuality, war and urban life, in ways that sometimes shocked contemporaries. The hour surveys "Leaves of Grass," which Whitaman wrote and rewrote over 40 years, and Civil War elegies that reflect his experiences as a battlefield nurse. Poets Allen Ginsberg and Galway Kinnell acknowledge their debt to Whitman; Louis Turenne portrays the poet in old age.
