Publisher's Summary

Perhaps the first great and truly "American" poet, Walt Whitman's writing reflected the idealism and turbulence of the mid-19th century. His poetry broke new stylistic ground with its unconventional meter and rhyme schemes, yet celebrated democratic values, the beauty of nature, and the complex variety and vitality of American life. The Poetry of Walt Whitman presents 32 of his most remarkable works, including "In Paths Untrodden", "For You O Democracy", and "Tears", eloquently performed by Joan Allen, Bill Pullman, Burt Reynolds, and seven other renowned actors.

Walt Whitman

Good selection but found the music somewhat obtrusive. Reading a little bass heavy on headphones.
