A STUDY GUIDE TO THE POETRY OF WALT WHITMAN

by | Read by Peter Strauss

Poetry & Drama • 1.2 hrs. • Audio Program • ©

This program offers a lecture-like introduction to the life and work of Walt Whitman. Although reference is made to a number of his poems, the only poems read are "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd," "Passage to India" and a portion of "Song of Myself." Emmy Award winner Peter Strauss presents the facts and opinions about the poet and his work with the pace of a good storyteller, and he brings passion and heart to the poems, particularly the somber "Lilacs." The enclosed booklet is helpful, offering a glossary of terms; a synopsis of the poems read; and references to books, music, and films related to Whitman. Occasional symphonic music by Ives and Prokofiev is a nice touch but unnecessary. P.B.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 99]
