Walt Whitman: A Selection, Volume 1 | [Walt Whitman]

Walt Whitman: A Selection, Volume 1

Walt Whitman’s work influenced many later poetic voices, and no work more so than this epic American poem, 'Leaves of Grass', which he spent his entire life writing and constantly revising until his death. The work heralded a new dynamic relationship in poetry, with its candid and sensual interpretation of his observations and thoughts on the human spirit and all aspects of existence at a time when poetic tradition employed symbolism or allegory.

    "Best read American poetry I've ever listened to"

    Being a regular buyer of poetry audiobooks and CDs, I would like to say that this is the best read American poetry book I've ever listened to. If you are a poetry lover, you'll love this audiobook. Make sure you buy both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.
