    A man, tiring of an astronomy lecture, takes a walk in the mystical night air to renew his sense of purpose.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This poem is NOT read by Neil Armstrong or Frank Borman. Their voices appear as brief NASA recordings made during their lunar missions. Obviously, had the the poem actually been read by the two astronauts, it would have been a wonderful recording.


    What was most disappointing about Walt Whitman’s story?

    The readers of the poem were not Armstrong and Borman. Plus, the music got to be a little tedious.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    No.


    What character would you cut from When I Heard the Learn'd Astronomer?

    All of them.


    Any additional comments?

    Do not buy this recording. It is not what it is implied to be.
