Shut Not Your Doors, &c. Analysis

SHUT not your doors to me, proud libraries,

For that which was lacking on all your well-fill'd shelves, yet

needed most, I bring;

Forth from the army, the war emerging--a book I have made,

The words of my book nothing--the drift of it everything;

A book separate, not link'd with the rest, nor felt by the intellect,

But you, ye untold latencies, will thrill to every page;

Through Space and Time fused in a chant, and the flowing, eternal


To Nature, encompassing these, encompassing God--to the joyous,

electric All,

To the sense of Death--and accepting, exulting in Death, in its turn,

the same as life,

The entrance of Man I sing.10

.: :.

Whitman analyzed the level of acceptance that his works get in a society of the eighteenth century; for example, his writings did not go according to the established or expected for that time and this also considers that the knowledge of this period is incomplete and can be enhanced with his or others contributions.
The title of the poem "Shut Not Your Doors" states the fact of the need of Whitman for his audience to establish an open mind or "open door" to what he wants to share because what is written in his publications is not expressed in any other book written so far.
The interpretation of the poem states that he did not see the metaphorical implication of a library as a place of limited knowledge, instead it is a place that can be reinforced by the unexpected or unprovoked knowledge.
I apologize for grammar mistakes as I am not a native speaker.
