Walt Whitman stands out as one of poetry's towering anomalies: In celebrating the trees, water, sky and air, the bear, the eagle, the buffalo and the lion, Whitman expressed a uniquely democratic vision that engulfs not only the American continent but the entire universe. His passionate vehemence, his faith in the common man, and his unflinching pursuit of the truth gave form to an arsenal of ideas, inspiring and motivating generations of writers to come.

This collection includes: I Hear America Singing, Starting from Paumanok, I Sing the Body Electric, Crossing Brooklyn Ferry, Beat! Beat! Drums!, Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking, A Noiseless Patient Spider and When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd.

Delivered with verve and passion, Garrick Hagon's reading is suffused with an energy found in Whitman's most moving poetry.
