Hi! I’m Kristie. I live in Southern California with my husband, 8-year-old daughter, and five dogs. I teach literature at a small college during the day, and spend my evenings as a creative writing dance mom. I discovered my love for reading in elementary school, when I first read The Black Stallion in the fourth grade. Since then, I read as if my life depends on it. Bookstores are my amusement parks, novels are my constant companions, and my dream is to build floor to ceiling bookshelves in every room of my house. I love paranormal romance novels, and I especially love novels with strong, fearless heroines. In my free time, I love to hike and camp in the mountains, and I don’t think there is anything better than reading a great book underneath a canopy of pine trees.

Walt Whitman’s Paradox: The Philosophy of Democracy and the Poetics of Subjugation
by Kristie Camacho
In A Reader’s Guide to Walt Whitman, Gay Allen states, “the great problem in interpreting the poems of Leaves of Grass is to find a suitable context . . . The fact that the context is necessary proves that the poems do have a unity of some kind, but the unity is so subjective that there is always the danger that each critic, by applying his own subjective context will find whatever meaning he wishes” (148). Similar to Allen’s views of the critic’s interpretation, Whitman has created a collection of poems that are contingent upon his particular contextual outlook. Whitman’s vision of democracy consisted of a nation of strong individuals, knowledgeable of and accepting in their position of divinity. In order to create such a nation of ideal human beings, Whitman relied upon the male/female sense of gender appropriate behavior. Although Whitman himself was a supporter of equality (most likely a result of his Quaker influences) he was unable to resolve the discrepancies between his divine plan for the nation’s future, and the necessity of the female to assume a position of subjugation. In light of such contradictions, Whitman chose not to choose. Instead, he represented the best qualities of both genders, while espousing the duties expected of them. Within his poetry, Whitman gave voice and praise to those women seeking freedom from gender roles, and to those women who loved their place within the domestic realm. He was certainly a voice for all positions, and although his paradoxes may have seemingly helped, then hindered the female plight, his immortal words gave countless individuals pause to ruminate upon these issues, and perhaps make lasting changes of their own.
