  1. From Song of Myself

  2. # 10 • Stanza 1 • Hunting in the wilderness • Stanzas 2 and 3 • Yankee clipper – fastest and most popular sailing vessels • Shares chowder with clam-diggers

  3. #10 • Stanza 3 • Witnesses a trapper’s marriage into a Native American family • “red girl” – Native American • Readers should feel pride and affection • Stanza 4 • Shelters a runaway slave

  4. #10 • Whitman sees himself as one who embraces nature, others and cosmos

  5. #33 • The speaker takes on the voices of unsung heroes: a skipper in a storm, a mother burnt as a witch in front of her children, a hunted slave, a firefighter crushed by a falling building, and a dyeing general under fire.

  6. #33 • “All these I feel or am” • The speaker is omniscient and Whitman’s own emphatic persona • Persona – the voice the speaker takes on

  7. # 52 • Highly personal and true to Whitman’s nature • He mocks his own ego, but proclaims his importance as well • A voice of the people

  8. #52 • Hawk’s cry = poet’s voice • Powerful because • it is not tame • it cannot be translated or understood by conventional standards of beauty
