Walt Whitman began his 1855 "Leaves of Grass" with "I celebrate myself, / And what I assume you shall assume, / For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you." Americans have been celebrating themselves for centuries, often telling their personal stories in first person as a unique opportunity to reveal their own and America's coming of age. Novelists, short story writers, dramatists, and poets embrace the opportunity. The works of novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald, mystery writer Rex Stout, theater of the absurd playwright Edward Albee, and Nobel Prize winning poet Louise Gluck, reveal why unconventional first-person narrators play such an important role in establishing the American identity.
