Abraham Lincoln's letters and speeches offer an insightful portrait. The collection progresses chronologically after the stirring introduction of an autobiographical piece Lincon wrote at an editor's request. The jacket contains a helpful chronology of Lincoln's life. George Vail's resonant voice captures the nuances of the letters with smooth expression, but he doesn't overdo it. He reflects Lincoln's warmth, humor and steel with assurance. This audio anthology provides Lincoln scholars and listeners with an interest in belles lettres a valuable opportunity to access the material. The sound quality and overall production are excellent. A second volume, Lincoln's Prose, makes a nice complement to this collection. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 95]
