ABSTRACT
The article presents a critical appreciation of the works of the poet Walter Whitman. The best symbolic achievement of the poet Walter Whitman is "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloomed." The key symbols are the lilac which stands for the new birth in the spring of the year, the drooping star which stands for death and death indifferently and so inspires the poet that he becomes the bird and now his vocation is a proper and symbolic song in which death and life are indistinguishably locked and have their opposition cancelled.
