More > newspapers ,Whitman resolved to become a poet publishing his own work Leaves of Grass in 1855. This work was on the whole well received and was praised by fellow poet Ralph Waldo Emerson. There was however considerable criticism of the sexual nature of some of the poems.

Leaves of Grass is a poetry collection by the American poet Walt Whitman (1819–1892). Though the first edition was published in 1855, Whitman spent his entire life writing Leaves of Grass,... More > revising it in several editions until his death. Among the poems in the collection are "Song of Myself", "I Sing the Body Electric", and in later editions, Whitman's elegy to the assassinated President Abraham Lincoln, "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd". This book is notable for its delight in and praise of the senses during a time when such candid displays were considered immoral. Where much previous poetry, especially English, relied on symbolism, allegory, and meditation on the religious and spiritual, Leaves of Grass (particularly the first edition) exalted the body and the material world. Influenced by Ralph Waldo Emerson and the Transcendentalist movement, itself an offshoot of Romanticism, Whitman's poetry praises nature and the individual human's role in it.< Less

More > called for a new poetic voice that embodied the spirit of America. Some of its well-known poems include "Song of Myself" and "I Sing the Body Electric," and most were fiddled with and added to over the course of Whitman's life. Whitman wanted his book to be small enough to fit in a reader's pocket, as it was more likely to be read in the "open air." And he noted "I am nearly always successful with the reader in the open air." The title of the book is also a pun: "Grass" was a term that publishers ascribed to inferior literary works and "leaves" refer to the pages on which they were printed. It was considered "obscene literature" when it first came out, and critics accused its anonymous author of homosexuality.< Less
