Walt Whitman

a.k.a. Walter Whitman

Author Code: AWWX

Born: May 31, 1819 - Long Island, New York, USA

Died: Mar. 26, 1892 - Camden, New Jersey, USA

Whitman's education was limited to elementary schooling and a period as a printer's apprentice. From 1838 to 1848, he worked as an editor for Democratic newspapers, journeyman printer and writer for a number of magazines. In 1851, he took up carpentering (his father's trade) and continued in that trade until 1854. Nevertheless, during these periods Whitman spent much of his time absorbing all he could from lectures, libraries and other sources. In 1855, he published his Leaves of Grass which drew very little attention other than a promising comment from Emerson. Whitman continued to rearrange, add and revise Leaves of Grass through numerous editions until his death in 1892.

He also spent time as a volunteer nurse during the Civil War and was a clerk in the Department of the Interior (1865). After suffering a stroke in 1873, he moved to Camden, where he remained for the rest of his life. Whitman won major acclaim and recognition abroad and is considered one of the most important literary figures of the ninteenth century.
