Happy (Belated) Birthday, Walt Whitman!

Posted on by Dodge

In honor of Walt Whitman’s 195th birthday, which just passed on May 31st, we wanted to share with you a part of our history — two posters that feature his quotes. Whitman is the only poet featured twice on Dodge Poetry Festival posters – in 1986 and 2008.

1986:
“I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journeywork of the stars”
-from “Song of Myself

2008:
“What is it then between us?
What is the count of the scores or hundreds of years between us?

Whatever it is, it avails not — distance avails not, and place avails not,
I too lived…”
-from “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry
