Arago: 5-cent Whitman

5-cent Whitman

Walt Whitman (1819-1892) appears on the 5-cent Famous American Poets stamp, issued February 20, 1940. Whitman was one of the few poets of his era to depart from a conservative style, making frequent use of rambling blank verse and free verse. His prolific output culminated in the anthology "Leaves of Grass."
