Sufic Interpretations of “Song of Myself”

Being a transcendentalist Whitman emerges as a believer in the interrelation of God, man and nature. He had ecstatic experiences in which he received revelations and was subject to recurrences of an extreme state of mystical consciousness. He was a visionary. His moods of ecstasy and understanding are a result of his contemplation of nature. The secret is that man and the world are good, pious and holy, and are to be accepted with joy and trustfully. He was indebted to the sufi tradition as he used the sufi themes and symbols. He is concerned with the relationship between God and man, and more like sufis, his treatment goes beyond the abstract essence of the human intellect and spirit and includes the physical aspect in his vision of human divinity.
