    I bought this for a dollar at a library sale, and it's wonderful. I own a copy of most of these poems, but rarely read them. Instead, my exposure to Whitman comes mainly through my listening to Fred Hersch's musical adaptation of "Leaves of Grass," my favorite recording of the 2000s. To then hear the same verses recited (vigorously) by the narrator here gives me the kind of thrill I've always been told it should give me on the page.

    Whitman’s poetry isn’t my favourite, but his writing is still elegant and powerful. A lot of his words seem to come from a place of frustration and you can tell that he was a very passionate and just person. Whitman’s words are classic and I would recommend that you take a gander!

Walt Whitman’s writing style is so beautifully expressive and eloquent that I truly enjoyed reading each and every one of the poems in this collection, even the ones that weren’t my favorite. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes poetry, or is trying to get into it more!

    4.5 ⭐ Surprised at how much I enjoyed this one. 'Agonies are one of my changes of garments, I do not ask the wounded person how he feels, I myself become the wounded person, My hurts turn livid upon me as I lean on a cane and observe .' 'Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged, Missing me one place search another, I stop somewhere waiting for you.' 4.5 ⭐ Surprised at how much I enjoyed this one.

    I read this book as an audiobook. I have to say, its melancholic to listen to Walt’s poems whilst in quarantine. If I was on the train ride home or a walk from the bookshop of some sort, this book would’ve made all the difference in the world. This is not a review but an entree of some sort :)

    My first foray into poetry--aside from the juvenile rhymes and verses of Tolkien in his Tom Bombadill volume. I certainly struggled through a lot of this, because I default to propositions and prose. But, I think Whitman was a great choice for me, because of his humanist-like explorations (with pantheistic tendencies)--I'm a sucker for weird religious musings. Free verse is interesting, but I'll be interested to explore more poetry that has the constraints of meter and rhyme, because it necessar My first foray into poetry--aside from the juvenile rhymes and verses of Tolkien in his Tom Bombadill volume.

Free verse is interesting, but I'll be interested to explore more poetry that has the constraints of meter and rhyme, because it necessarily condenses expression to the rules of the poem.

    I think it's a great introduction to Whitman, it examines three poems and although the PDF that comes with the CD's doesn't contain the poems themselves but only an introduction, they are not that difficult to find if one wishes to read further, and in any case a useful glossary is included. As for the audio, Peter Strauss reads clearly and has good pronunciation, the readings are indeed pretty dramatic.

    I’ve never taken the time to read poetry. This intrigued me simply because it was cheap and I wanted a new book for the summer. This is #2 of 3. I soon realized I couldn’t read this quickly. Poetry is not like a book with chapters. In each poem, there is so much imagery that you must read slowly in order to take it all in and appreciate it. Each poem is like a book unto itself, a story, almost a quick novel. I’ll read more.

    Many do not seem to like the background music, finding it too assertive. I liked it. Thought it complemented the poetry, and some very fine readings too.

    I love the imagery and focus on nature so very much. Especially when it's winter and Spring is near. I love the imagery and focus on nature so very much. Especially when it's winter and Spring is near.
