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.

    " Completed reading the works of Walt Whitman... Really enjoyed it! Very impressed with his work, particularly the gender and race equality expressed, love of the outdoors, first hand accounts of travel, Nature, Politics, Civil War... and finally the way he refers to "you the reader." "

    " I don't love Whitman, but I did find more of him to like this time around--mostly the things that come after "Song of Myself." Good job on the singing and celebrating, though, WW. "

    " For some reason, I've never gotten around to reading Whitman. All I can say is, What a Discovery! I had the impression that Whitman was an egomaniac in extremis. On the surface, he comes close to that in "Song of Myself." But on many re-readings, I think the "energy" you see in that particular poem is more a sense of urgency in his poetic voice. I can't go into detail about the rest of his oeuvre, but I'll be returning time and again to many of his poems. "
