GALWAY KINNELL READS WALT WHITMAN

by | Read by Galway Kinnell

Poetry & Drama • 1 hr. • Anthology • ©

This recording by one of America's foremost poets tries to make a case for the prayerful, incantatory nature of poetry. Galway Kinnell's resonant voice emphasizes the materiality of images, and his heavy, tremulous cadences can be dramatic. In his reading of Whitman the style simply calls attention to itself. Kinnell misses the less solemn virtues of "SONG OF MYSELF" and the six shorter selections. J.F.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 92]
