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.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Well-rehearsed but unenergetic reading. 16. Juli 2012
Von Mr. K. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
There have been better readings of classic American literature. Hal Holbrook is a fine example in his recordings of Mark Twain.

It's difficult to recommend Ed Begley, Sr., as he occasionally spikes his reading with tremors, then drones a bit in a monotonous delivery, with no inflection for drama or excitement. Whether reciting the death of a President or an adventure with a mockingbird, he's too much in equilibrium. It's difficult for the listener to consistently distinguish pathos and levity by his voice. His is a mellifluous voice, but it stays level too much so that it rarely reaches the heights that the great poetry demands. Also irritating is the commercial ending of the CD, an unexpected and unwelcome advertisement for more HarperCollins Publishers recordings. We can read author names on the cover. The listener does not need to be reminded of them, and whatever power that Begley has delivered is diminished by the breezy announcement.

Given those caveats, this is a good introduction to Whitman's poetry. He shines regardless of the imperfections of the reciter and production. This writer ranges with exuberance and sensitivity over many subjects from war to the simplicity of a nature walk.

Whitman soars to fresh heights without a flaw, without hesitation, without an inferior confidence that would challenge a lesser poet to strain for imagery. He is the finest of American poets for profound and simple imagery, and that alone can recommend this collection.

Best reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unforgettable 5. September 2010
Von E. Hector Jones - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

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!
3.0 von 5 Sternen The guy has a nice deep voice 26. Dezember 2016
Von LiLKidneys - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

The guy has a nice deep voice. But there is nothing on this CD except him reading the poem. He doesnt even say the title before he starts. No background, no nothing. So, if you are already familiar with Whitman's poetry and have read it, then perhaps this would be better for you. Some poems are quite lengthy.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Get Culture! 13. September 2015

Instead of listening to the Stones on the oldies station for the umpteenth time - try this! Oh how beautiful are Walt Whitman's words! No, there's no beat for dancing in your car but might just open a new neuron pathway for insight.

Love it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Begley Is Superb 3. Juni 2009
Von C. C. Black - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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.
