Walt Whitman's 'Song of Myself' And 'The Sleepers' # 2
[ send me this essay ]
A 6 page paper that examines the significance of the major images Whitman provokes in relationship to: what he is trying to say and how he says it through the images. The paper posits that the images are the same, in that they reflect the triology of individual body, individual soul, and national soul, but that they are from contrary viewpoints: Sleepers--from the soul's view, Song--from the individual's view. No additional sources cited.

Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself” and Herman Melville’s “Benito Cereno”
[ send me this essay ]
This 6 page report discusses “Song of Myself” and “Benito Cereno” in the context of the vision each of the authors had regarding race and power, freedom and self-knowledge. Whitman constantly asserts what he believes to be a pattern of life, death, and rebirth in the universe. Melville’s “Benito Cereno” raises issues related to America’s 19th century attitudes about race, status and competency that allow the reader to question many of the assumptions typically held about the premise of equality and independence that are supposedly central characteristics of American thought and belief. No bibliography.

Comparing Whitman to Whitman
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page paper comparing two of Walt Whitman's works, discussing a carol appearing within one. There is no joy in either the eulogy to Lincoln or in the sailor's urging his captain to rise from his blood-stained space. The Carol of Death offers a glimmer of hope within "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd." "O Captain, My Captain" is a lament for the fallen captain and for the sailor's loss. The Carol of Death, however, offers hope in the midst of sorrow. The thrush does not demand that the sufferer forget the one he mourns, but he does offer a positive view of death as a fitting culmination to a life well lived. No additional sources.
