Walt Whitman's poetry was considered scandalous in his time. Poetry in the American Romantic Movement. The Romantic Period in America ran from 1820 to 1860. Nature, religion, and patriotism inspired American poets such as Emily Dickinson, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman, and Edgar Allen Poe. They created inspirational and often experimental poems. At this time, America was in a period of expansion; the country was also discovering it had a distinctive voice. This came through clearly in the literature of the time. The romantic ideas that give the period its name took inspiration from art and nature. Wood frame with glass and matted 13" x 16"
