Philadelphia, Camden to celebrate Walt Whitman’s 200th birthday

This year, you will probably be hearing a lot about Walt Whitman. May 31 will be the 200th anniversary of his birth, and a year of events and exhibitions will celebrate that fact.

Walt Whitman is most known for his collection “Leaves of Grass,” originally published in Brooklyn in 1855; he revised it constantly for the rest of his life.

Arguably his most famous poem, “Song of Myself,” contains the memorable passage:

Do I contradict myself?

Very well then I contradict myself,

(I am large, I contain multitudes.)
