Walt Whitman had very unique characteristics. He was a very isolated person. Even during his childhood he stayed apart from his family and spent most of his time at a newspaper editorial, or at an office where he got his first job. Walt was not thrilled about his family’s ties to the country and farmland, which he notably scorned in his letters to Abraham Leech (Folsom and Price 2). Whitman made every attempt possible to stay away from his family’s farm and to not become a farmer, which his father strongly pushed for (Folsom and Price 2).

This shows how Grant wants to make a change in his life. Grant is a person who goes from being miserable and only cares for himself into someone who can love other things in life and fights for

Many people would never open up and reveal the inner most parts of them by in which them being afraid by what may be uncovered.
