Which of these was not a prime reason why Whitman chose to write in free verse?

A. to express his individuality
B. to celebrate democracy
C. to convey a sense of freedom
D. to imitate earlier poets he admired

I say B but am I right

  • English -

    I disagree.

    I don't think anything as structured as democracy guided Whitman. Each person reads poetry in his/her own way. I think Whitman chose free verse to convey a sense of freedom.

    What does the author of your text say?

    The question is saying which is not a prime reason

  • English -

    Oops! I misread the question. Sorry.

    I think you're right -- B is the best answer.

  • English -

    it's ok and thanks :)
