Students in American Literature and Composition I have been reading Walt Whitman. They were asked to create their own version of “Song of Myself.” Alliteration, assonance, onomatopoeia, imagery, parallel structure, and cataloging were all required within their poems. See the attached link to read what students had to share. Enjoy their masterpieces!
Walt Whitman by William Kurtz? or Mathew Brady?, ca. late 1860s
