No Connection

I find no connection to Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass" to Siri Hustvedt's "The Sorrows of an American".   I can relate to Hustvedt's novel but not Walt Whitman's.  Hustvedt's has a beginning and an ending.  I like beginning , middle and an ending.  Hustvedt's plot is interesting and captivating whereas Whitman's was dry and uninteresting.
