Does this question relate to the poem "Leaves of Grass"? If so, this is a full book of poems, and I will need you to either supply the exact quote or let me know which book it is located in. Thank you....

...having pried through the strata, analyzed to a hair

Leaves of Grass “Song of Myself” 


Thank you... I cannot figure out if that is defining layers or social status

In context, this refers to levels or layers of meaning.


Song of Myself

General love of poetry I've been stuck on this quote all morning. Thank u for the clarification ;)
