Dramatic readings from "Song of Myself," "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd," and "Passage to India" reveal the manner in which Walt Whitman's plain yet beautiful language redefined the world of poetry. An explorer of cultural thought and a lover of sensual pleasure, Whitman championed the causes of common men and reveled in emotional and physical love. Now experience what he felt with selections from his remarkable collection of poems, Leaves of Grass. In addition to the readings, this study guide includes an introduction to Whitman's life and a detailed discussion of his major works. Author Kirsten Silva Gruesz, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of English specializing in American Literature at the College of William and Mary, and a guest lecturer at both Yale and Harvard. This guide is part of the A+ AUDIO series from Time Warner, an innovative set of study materials that will help you to better understand, appreciate, and enjoy great works of literature. Look for other A+ titles from Audible in the Education section of Personal Development.
