One Great Author. One Great CD.

A poem by Whitman may be whoops and hollers, or beating of drums, or the ebb of the tide singing to itself among the stones, or laments in the night or cries of ecstasy.

In this recording drawn from the Caedmon archives, reader Ed Begley, Sr. performs selections from Whitman’s lifelong work, Leaves of Grass.
