Roots of Sky-EvolvingFrom Walt Whitman
Thereis a very small portion of formal education that focuses on the unconscious. I have studied Walt Whitman in high school, under the label of transcendentalist. However, through this class, I now understand Whitman’s writing style much better. While most novels or literary pieces we read are reflective of the conscious mind, “Leaves of Grass” uses metonymy, specifically unconscious associations.
