Walt Whitman and Originality

I think Walt Whitman is original in that he only has five years of education to account for.  He tries to come across as free spirited and he does but I think he is original in that he cannot be less than original because he does not have a main stream education even for his day.  His originality is in the fact that he lacks education and can produce writing for the world to read.
