Summarize Whitman’s poem “To a Stranger.”
In Walt Whitman’s “To a Stranger,” the speaker passes a stranger. The sight of this person stimulates the speaker to reflect on the meaning of acquaintance, friendship, intimacy, and identity. The gender of the stranger is not provided, and it seems that the speaker is thinking or dreaming rather than talking to the stranger. Reflecting on people they grew up with, the speaker considers the ways that people share and are equal to each other.
