This work has been developed for people who want to know more about certain details about Walt Whitman s life and works. This thesis gives us some insight into American Literature in which Walt Whitman became one of its best poets. This work has been organized by Chapters. In Chapter One there are some details about Whitman´s childhood and the beginning of his career. Also, there are certain details about his family, his personality, his religion, his death, and his legacy. This study seeks to contribute to the knowledge of America history and literature. For this reason, we have described the changes that the United States suffered during the nineteenth century in which Whitman lived and wrote his poems. In Chapter Two there are few comprehensive studies about slavery, abolition, transcendentalism, realism, Civil War, Reconstruction, and the Industrial Revolution. In Whitman s master piece, Leaves of Grass which is one of the most famous books of the world, we have chosen at random seven of his most important poems and have analyzed them to made a contribution to the understanding of Whitman´s nature and words. These analysis of the poems are included in Chapter Three. In Chapter Four, we talk about the way each historical event influenced on Walt Whitman´s life and works. Also, we give an opinion about what we believe is the most influential event in his life: the Civil War. Also, there is a short comparison among Walt Whitman and some poets of the 19th and the 20th centuries
