Walt Whitman and His Writing

I do not enjoy reading Leaves of Grass because it is repetitive and switches from prose to poetry or rather sorta poetry.  His lack of education shows in his writing.  His use of ... at the end of many sentences could have been his own words instead of continually requesting the reader to fill in the blanks.  I wonder what he is trying to convey as I read.
