Read selections from Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass ("Song of Myself," "To Think of Time," "Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking," "Time to Come," "I Sing the Body Electric," and an excerpt from "Passage to India") and respond thoughtfully and comprehensively to three different poems in three different blog comments, using textual evidence at least once per post on the Leaves of Grass Blog. Comment specifically as to how Whitman’s verse is connected to Coelho’s idea of “Soul of the World” in The Alchemist. Make sure you identify the poem you are using to convey your ideas. Additionally, you must respond thoughtfully to two other people's posts as well using textual evidence. Each post and response must be at least 50 words long and must contain textual evidence (for this assignment you do not need line numbers, just quotation marks around text evidence). In all, you will have 5 separate posts. Due by 3 May for all classes.
