The permanent modernity of Walt Whitman

Just part of the beauty of Leaves Of Grass is its permanent modernity. Nothing I have read since I first read this masterpiece has made me exult and feel moved in quite the same way [listen to a reading of this poem below]. Over and over, I will read lines celebrating the most humble of moments, and marvel at the manifestation of eternity he rightly accords them. A spokesman for the human race; a genius.
