History • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1992

Putting the Gettysburg Address into historical and cultural context, Wills brings its 272 immortal words to life. Analyzing Lincoln’s speech, Wills presents it as a calculated political statement with roots in the Declaration of Independence, the Greek Revival and Transcendentalism. Wills’s deep voice resonates, and he enunciates clearly. He uses little inflection, but the words themselves hold one’s interest. Pace and sound are consistent throughout. Wonderful strains of trumpet provide a backdrop for the Gettysburg Address itself in a moving conclusion. J.A.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 93]
