Alone on the Beach at Night (Little Black Classics #10)

Alone on the Beach at Night (Little Black Classics #10) - Walt Whitman Walt Whitman's poetry from 19th century America is unlike any other Victorian poetry I have read. I assume it is because he is American, but I saw no lyrical prowess, and my heart was not set aflame by any words. I am fairly new to loving poetry, but these poems, or lyrical sentences as I feel they are, simply felt pretentious and read as mere musings.
