This study examines the suggestion that the closest literary equivalent of French Impressionist painting may be Walt Whitman's poetry. It examines the interrelationship of the theoretical concepts of Realism and Impressionism and their roots in Romanticism. Five major concepts that embody Impressionistic theory and technique in painting are elaborated, and then applied to Whitman's poetic technique. 1990
