Notes & Reviews:
Walt Whitman was a seer, prophet, visionary, and preacher as well as a writer. He stands out as one of poetry's towering anomalies, celebrating the trees, water, sky and air, the bear, the eagle, the buffalo, and the lion. This audiobook is delivered with verve and passion by Garrick Hagon, whose reading is suffused with an energy found in Whitman's most moving poetry. This release contains some of Whitman's most famous poems, including "I Sing the Body Electric," "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry," and "Our of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking." Whitman's passionate vehemence, his faith in the common man, and his unflinching pursuit of the truth can be heard in each and every one of the poems featured here. His arsenal of ideas has inspired and motivated writers for generations.
