Why Section Fifty-Two?

At the risk of sounding terribly pretentious, the title for this blog was inspired by the 52nd section of Walt Whitman’s epic poem, Song of Myself:

“I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable,

I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.”

This blog is where I intend to sound my barbaric yawp.  Sorry about that.

If you’d like to read Song of Myself in full – and you really should, it’s fantastic – click here.

(Make yourself a brew first though, it’s pretty long as poems go).
