Walt Whitman and Hawk Man Walt Whitman was not a transcendentalist Firstly He dose not fit into the right time period Hes to late It can be argued that he was effected and even inspired by the movement But so was Mya Angelo and shes not a transcendentalist At best he serves as a bookend He represents the end of an era He is the son who takes on the family business and as his first act as owner is to rearrange all of the inventory and name himself employee of the month Yes It is difficult to talk about the transcendentalists with out mentioning Walt Whitman However only in the same way that it is hard to talk about the League of Nations without mentioning the United Nations That or the Justice League of America without mentioning the Super Friends By the way what where Hawk Man and Wonder Woman doing in the Justice League of America They werent American Hawk Man wasnt even wasnt human Yeah Superman wasnt an earthling either but at least he had citizenship Although he sought to become more than himself through his work this is not a trait reserved only to transcendentalists If every poet who made more out of their subject than the literal was a transcendentalist than they all would qualify Thats what poets do If they didnt wed just call them writers It just so happens that Whitmans subject matter in Song of Myself was himself Im not sure if I really needed to say that He took on multiple roles throughout the poem constantly redefining himself in the hope of becoming undefinable This idea can be seen in one his final statements Do I contradict myself Very well than I contradict myself I am large I contain multitudes Although some take this passage to be little more than a witticism I think that may be a pun tacked on
