I celebrate myself,The Teaching Company is offering a free lecture on Walt Whitman. It's presented by Professor James A. W. Heffernan of Dartmouth College from his course “Great Authors of the Western Literary Tradition, 2nd Edition.” Enjoy!
And what I assume you shall assume.
For every atom belonging to me, as good belongs to you.
I loafe and invite my soul,
I lean and loafe at my ease, observing a spear of summer grass.
- Walt Whitman, from "Song of Myself"
