Considered one of America's most influential poets, Walt Whitman aimed to transcend traditional epics and avoided aesthetic form to mirror the potential freedoms to be found in America. In 1855, he self-published the collection Leaves of Grass; the book is now a landmark in American literature, though at the time of its publication it was considered highly controversial. Whitman later worked as a volunteer nurse during the Civil War, writing the collection Drum Taps (1865) in connection to the experiences of war-torn soldiers.

In the spring of 1855, Whitman, self-published a slim collection of 12 unnamed poems with a preface titled Leaves of Grass. Leaves of Grass became his signature creation and over time it was updates to include many more poems.

Despite previous outcry's surrounding his work, Whitman is considered one of America's most groundbreaking poets, having inspired an array of dedicated scholarship and media that continues to grow.
