American poet Walt Whitman was born on May 31, 1819, in West Hills, Long Island, New York and died on March 26, 1892, in Camden, New Jersey. Whitman published nine separate editions of his most well-known work, Leaves of Grass beginning in 1855. Over the next thirty-seven years, Whitman revised the poems, as well as adding new poems and deleting other poems from each edition. In 1881 Whitman settled on the final arrangement of the poems and thereafter no further revisions were made. All new poems written after 1881 were added as annexes to subsequent additions of Leaves of Grass .
