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.

"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
