Breaking into the kind of free-verse lines in which he would cast Leaves of Grass , he offers a wild attempt to voice the full range of selves in his contradictory nation: Whitman instead probes for a voice that reconciles the dichotomies, a voice inclusive enough to speak for slave and slavemaster—or that negotiates the distance between the two. So Whitman in these early notes identifies the poles of human possibility—the spectrum his capacious poetic voice would have to cover—as it appeared to him at mid-nineteenth century: His dawning insight had to do with a belief that each and every democratic self was vast and contradictory, as variegated as the nation itself, and so the poet had to awaken the nation, to bring Americans out of their lethargy of discrimination and hierarchy to understand that, within themselves, they potentially contained—in fact potentially were —everyone else. By the time Whitman first put this voice into print in , though, the nation was only five years away from discovering how fully the forces of division and violence would overpower the fading hopes of unity and absorption of difference. Union is the theme—of lovers, of earth and sea, of darkness and light—and in the magnetic field of this poem attraction is everything.
