    poems that represented events and important social issues going on in the United States of America during the late 1800’s. In his poems, “Song of Myself” and “Crossing the Brooklyn Ferry”, he talks to the future generations about society's problems, as if Whitman wanted the audience in today’s generation to learn from his own generation.

    In their wake was a calm, soft silence. I am supposed to be a member of the hunting crew but I have made very clear to the others that I do not wish to engage in the practice. In my past, while I was a lone gull, I was what you would call a typical seagull; savage, ruthless, and selfish. However, now I have chosen to disconnect myself from that identity and I think avoiding situations that could encourage that behaviour is a good idea. Hours go by and lunch time finally rolls around. I have…
