Poetry & Drama • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1855

LEAVES OF GRASS is a good choice to listen to while cooking, cleaning, gardening, or doing other chores that require rhythmic repetitive motion and leave your mind free to wander. Walt Whitman's reverence for the marvelous and the majestic, and his explorations of life's mysteries, can bring another dimension to any mundane task. But it requires concentration to follow along closely to poem after poem, despite Robin Field's pleasing voice and astute interpretations. This volume, however, can be listened to repeatedly, as Field brings new life to Whitman's poems with his intelligent emphasis and emotion. And when Field recites a particularly resonant phrase at just the right time, the moment can turn into song. R.L.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2009]
