Why I Picked the Poems
I selected those five poems because in my opinion, they were his best work.
I think Walt Whitman should be recognized as a poet because I think he was one of the best 19th century poets. Also, his poems were very broad and spoke about many different topics. Also, I think he was very well rounded, since he wrote both free verse and rhyming poems to go along with his broad range of topics.
