One of the most known poems in of his book “Leaves of Grass” is Song of myself. In a scary translation of life and the real experiences of Americans post World War II, “Howl” is a mind blowing and disturbing poem by Allen Ginsberg. In this essay I’m going to compare Whitman’s “Song of Myself” to “Howl” written by Beat generation poet Allen Ginsberg. There are a number of ways that Whitman’s influence can be noticed in Ginsberg’s work “Howl”, including a similar style of format and structure, a similar impact on the literary world and a concern with American people. Another significant influence that Whitman has for Ginsberg is the fact that Whitman had been an outcast from the literary circle of his era, with his long -winded style, free verse, sexual exposure and his appearance as a plainly dressed workman rather than a high society poet.

They write about it in most of their poems such as Thoreau's Walden and Emerson's Self-Reliance. Thoreau wrote, "if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." This quote means that the people who follow their dreams, or really anything in life, with confidence and with belief in their own strengths, they will be the people who succeed in the long run. He says that you do need to believe yourself to get to where you want to be. Transcendentalists do not believe in government and laws.
These words are also very encouraging and eye-opening to me because I used to think the emotions described were a sign that I was not truly a writer. It is refreshing and comforting to know that even a successful novelist such as Waters experiences the doubt, fear, and strain that I feel when writing. This statement discredits the idea that writing is always fun and free-flowing. I feel like I can now, after reading this, write with a little more confidence because I know there are others out there—groaning, wondering, and panicking—just like
Whitman's poem is really long it has a lot of symbolism, imagery, descriptions and whatever else you can name. It’s easy to become distracted by the many details of the poem, but with reasonable attention you can infer the underlying message he is trying to get across.

He was self built from the ground up. Whitman was self educated, independent, intelligent, and unique in many ways. Although most of his life he was alone, he left a mark on American by his writs of poetry which were influenced by Emerson himself. He struggled through life, desperately looking for an alternative to becoming a farm boy. This in turn, led to a failure in teaching, personal failure of his newspaper, and going through a fictional writing phase.
“Superman is me” Reading can be a hobby, a job, or even entertaining pleasure to some, but for Sherman Alexie it was a means of survival. He found this as a tool to forget and dismiss his problems by getting lost in the fluttered words of texts. Whether it was manuals, newspapers, magazines, mail, or books it never really mattered to him. In his renowned writing piece The Joy of Reading and Writing: Superman And Me, Alexie demonstrates the beginnings foundation of which dictated his career as a writer as well as the social endeavors the early Native Americans in their Reserve lived under in America. Alexie recalls the moment he picked up a Superman comic book, despite lacking the abilities to read even read at his early age and somehow
