LINCOLN'S PROSE

by | Read by George Vail

History • 2.75 hrs. • Anthology • ©

LINCOLN'S PROSE follows his writing chronologically, starting with an 1848 description of Niagara Falls and ending with the stirring words of his second inaugural address in 1865 (". . . with malice toward none, with charity toward all. . ."). The anthology shows the remarkable evolution of his ideas and convictions during this seventeen-year period. No commentary accompanies the text, so George Vail's reading has particular immediacy. Vail's slight twang ("leadin'" or "claimin'") and understated delivery call attention to Lincoln's humor, modesty and measured, but passionate, judgments. In Vail's presentation Lincoln comes alive as an immensely human person. J.H.L. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 97]
