This is what you shall do:

I have yet to have the pleasure of discovering most of Walt Whitman's corpus of work (I'm planning on it!), for I have read only a few of his poems/essays. However, in his 1855 preface to the Leaves of Grass anthology - this is even before the actual poetry begins!! - his words are simply astonishing, and I'd like to share a small section of them with you.
