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 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
Oops! I misread the question. Sorry.
I think you're right -- B is the best answer.
it's ok and thanks :)
