Against the then-popular condemnation of the radical abolitionist who seized a federal armory, attempting to arm slaves and create a violent rebelion against the South, Thoreau delivered this spirited speech justifying Brown’s character and actions to those who would have rather resolved (or failed to resolve) the issue of slavery using discussions and diplomacy.

Whitman

“Children of Adam” is the fourth book (of 35 total) of Walt Whitman’s legendary poetry collection Leaves of Grass. This book is among Whitman’s most controversial with its celebration of sexuality. It includes the poems:


To the Garden the World
From Pent-up Aching Rivers
I Sing the Body Electric
A Woman Waits for Me
Spontaneous Me
One Hour to Madness and Joy


We Two–How Long We were Fool‚Äôd
Out of the Rolling Ocean, the Crowd
Native Moments
Once I Pass’d Through a Populous City
Facing West from California’s Shores
Ages and Ages, Returning at Intervals
O Hymen! O Hymenee!
As Adam, Early in the Morning
