Walt whitman, romance with a stranger - poetry
The idea of brief encounters, even romantic encounters, with a stranger recurs often in the verses of Walt Whitman.
Take, for example, these lines from one of the inscriptions that Whitman wrote to his 1860 magazine of Foliage of Grass.
Clearly, Walt Whitman sees brief, attempt encounters with strangers as an apposite break for the strangers to interact. Conceivably the communiqu? will allow the strangers to befall friends.
In the lines of "To A Stranger," Whitman indicates that the strangers might develop into intimate and friendly friends. The chronicler in the poem is comfortably able to assume himself creating a past annals with the casual stranger and to forecast the opportunities for them to enjoy each other in physically friendly ways.
Here's a line from "Song of the Open Road," in print in 1860.
And from Whitman's "Carol of Occupations.
Also believe this passage from "Who Is Now Conception This?"
Walt Whitman's verses coin a sense of comfort with the idea that strangers can reflectively look at each other and act upon their impulses. I don't know the next come across will be with one's soulmate, as in the line, "You must be he I was seeking," from "To A Stranger. "
It seems cheap to believe that Walt Whitman met many strangers in his duration and enjoyed the encounters. It's been said that Whitman was one of America's first self-identified homosexuals and his lifestyle may have reflected his ease with and attraction to strangers.
"To A Stranger" is also known as "Calamus 22. " "Calamus" is a progression or cluster of 45 poems that were built-in in the editions of Foliage Of Grass.
The "Calamus" chain is about "manly attachment," and it's a chain in which Whitman will "tell the classified of my nights and days. " Both quotation marks are from the first poem in the "Calamus" series.
Among the concluding lines in "To A Stranger," Walt Whitman says, "I am not to speak to you. " a expression characteristic of a man subsequent orders, as in society's assessment aligned with forbidden love. Yet impervious and un-discouraged Whitman says, "I am to see to it that I do not lose you. "
It seems that love, even with a stranger, will find a way.
To A Stranger
Passing stranger! you do not know
I have someplace surely
You grew up with me,
You give me the pleasure of your eyes,
I am not to speak to you, I am to think of you

Here resides a astonishing peace?Here, resides a alien peace With an army of stars to defeat Shinning, without a sound in the darkThe ebbing, eldritch dark; Time has no application here, Here, resides a strange, peace?Cold and oddly numb are my feet, As I look up, upon the many bridges One star bridging the next-as if,If Kings and Queens were Guarding them-the Hosts- O-Yes! A strange, alien peace?Ah! Praise, praise be to thee, to thee Flaming, furious firmaments-ye, Ye, prompt me not, of the wars I left,Of the foes, divine immortals?The enemies that never rest Ah! Praise, praise be to thee, to theeI hear music, harmony from afar (there) There are storms covert in a storehouse, For tomorrow-war beyond, beyondOrion's dust?perpetual dust; There, there the sun is dim to bleak.
