Explanation:

Whitman employs a number of literary devices in 'Song of Myself' to beautifully portray his idea of 'celebrating the democracy and individualism', and 'unity of humankind.'

As per the question, the given poetic devices have been correctly matched with the excerpt from poem as mentioned above.

Alliteration is the poetic device that involves the repetition of consonant sounds('g' and 'p' in the given line) at the beginning of two or more words('grass and graves', 'perpetual and promotions') immediately succeeding each other or at short intervals.

Assonance is a literary device that includes 'repetition of similar or identical vowel sounds' but starting with distinct consonant sounds. It assists in developing a rhythm and flowy effect in the poem. The excerpt 'no...before' involves repetition of the same vowel sound 'o' in 'No', 'doubt', 'thousand', 'before.'

Rhyme refers to the repetition of alike sounds customarily at the end of a line in a poem. The words 'room' and 'fume' give a similar rhyming sound.

Parallelism involves repetition of alike words or phrases('I ascend' in the given line) in order to create a rhythm, attract the readers' attention, and make it memorable for them.
