Fredericka Kampmeier

Whitman seems to feel that he is, always has been, and always will be part of every person and thing in the universe, and that he is just as good and not any better than anyone else. That every person seems to be a product of the environment in which he was placed and is part of that world. And that everything and everyone is basically good and deserving of the respect of everyone else. Why does he seem to believe this, and what does this say about American identity?
