Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Walt Whitman was born on Long Island, New York in 1819. He spent most of his early life in Brooklyn where he served as editor for a number of newspapers for brief periods. His first major work, Leaves of Grass, was published in 1855 and was subsequently published in nine enlarged editions throughout his lifetime. In 1862 in the midst of the Civil War, Whitman set out for the battlefield to find his wounded brother and continued to volunteer in hospitals throughout the length of the war. He died in 1892.

Ed Begley, Sr. was a prolific radio actor and from 1944-1948 he played the title role in the radio version of Charlie Chan. In 1947, Begley created the role of benighted war profiteer Joe Keller in Arthur Miller's All My Sons. He was a familiar figure in TV's "golden age" of the 1950s, and appeared 789 times as the William Jennings Bryan counterpart in the Broadway drama Inherit the Wind.

An excellent way to become acquainted with one of America's greatest poets 12. Juli 2008
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf
An audio CD of excerpts from Walt Whitman's poetry collection "Leaves of Grass" performed by Ed Begley, Sr., Essential Walt Whitman introduces listeners to Whitman's classic verses celebrating humanity. Including the popularly beloved poems such as "O Captain! My Captain!" and Whitman's elegy about President Abraham Lincoln, Essential Walt Whitman brings the printed verses to life with Begley's strong, emotional performances. An excellent way to become acquainted with one of America's greatest poets. 1 CD, 1 hour.

Begley Is Superb 3. Juni 2009
Von C. C. Black - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
Whitman is not my favorite poet by a stretch, but listening to Ed Begley Sr. recite it could change that over time. The excerpts are copious and well chosen; the excerpts from "A Song of Myself," intelligent. Begley's voice and delivery--warm, rich, never strained or histrionic--is a perfect match for the verse. Highly recommended.

Whitman collecter 16. September 2008
Von C. S. Arzeian - Veröffentlicht auf
This cd is a must for any fan or general reader of old Uncle Walt (as Robin Williams would say in Dead poets society, by Peter Weir.)

Its beautifully recorded and is easy to get into as Walt was always intended to be listened to rather than read. I recommend home private listening with preferebly a Bose wave system cd player or at least with a fine set of headphones...Enjoy, (plus its a bargain too !!!)

Unforgettable 5. September 2010
Von E. Hector Jones - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
Over thirty years ago I heard this recording of Ed Begley reading Whitman's OUT OF THE CRADLE ENLESSLY ROCKING. I never forgot the experience. I was in an English class and there was not a soul in the room that was visibly moved. I have all but committed this very long poem to memory but do not believe anyone has ever read it with as much gentility and grace as Begley,and have come to believe that no one ever could read Whitman's word with such an overwhelming empathy that is never maudlin nor 'dramatic'in the worse sense of the word but direct, pure, unmuddied, strong. In the intervening years, i have sifted through stacks in old record stores, public libraries and yard sales, searched through the internet and askeed English professors but did not find this recording available until now. It is the best recording of spoken poetry I have ever heard (and I've heard alot) and Begley was never better. It awoke me to poetry in a way I cannot describe but only gesticulate mutely in an attempt to say Listen to this!

The finest reader of Whitman! 1. April 2009
Von Eric B - Veröffentlicht auf
Ed Begley is quite simply the finest Whitman reader available. (If you Google "Mickle street review" you'll have access to Scourby and O' Herlihy and Orson Wells who also read Whitman quite well.)
Begley's reading of "Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking" is a deeply moving experience--one I return to frequently. His performance of section 8 of "The Sleepers" captures the haunting nature of this strange and lyrical poem perfectly.
I find that Begley's voice is--ironically--too mature for some of the more youthful passages from "Song of Myself" (although the passage "28 young men..." is read superbly). On the other hand, his readings of "Drum Taps" and "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd" have just the right balance of toughness, tenderness, and maturity.
This is a great introduction to some of Whitman's best work.
