ABSTRACT
Chapter Two of the book "Feminism, Manhood and Homosexuality: Intersections in Psychoanalysis and American Poetry" is presented. It looks at how poet Walt Whitman emphasized the predominance of maleness both in himself as well as in his poetic audience. In his works, Whitman correlated linguistic, sexual and political metaphors by linking complex intersections among sexuality, language and politics. His homosexual vision supported his linguistic theory, his hope for a democratic union, and his plea for sexual equality. Thus, his appeals for man's words and for words that described male to male relationships informed his conception of language as it is depicted in his work, An American Printer.
