Walt Whitman wrote some of the the most quintessential American poetry. In a way he spoke for his generation on many issues. He was perhaps most famous for an extremely long (35 separate chapters with many segments per chapter) poem called Leaves of Grass. It is sometimes referred to as a poetry collection, but Whitman saw it as one comprehensive poem.
