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

    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.
