It is NOT unabridged.

Any additional comments?

Walt Whitman's words and Ed Begley's reading are wondrous, sublime, and powerful. But this audiobook lasts a mere 43 minutes, which immediately tells you it is *not* an unabridged version of the book.

Well done, Walt Whitman and Ed Begley.

Ed Begley performed beautifully but titles of poems could have been added to the narration

Good reading when it isn't glitchy

Impeccably read, but poorly edited: tons of background hiss and even glitches skipping several seconds.

Breathtaking

Probably the best performance I heard. I wish it included more poems from this universal poet.

Blast

Short but very interesting. His appreciation for life is evident. I never got into Walt, but this makes me want to read more from this poet.

Inspiring!

This is the first time I truly "got" Walt! Thank you for this introduction to the grandfather of American poetry.

Bastardizes great American literature

Not unabridged. I was eagerly expecting to read along while listening. HOWEVER, this is not read in full or in order. Even his snippet from the Sleepers leaves out a few lines at the end. Terrible. This is why an idiot like Trump can get elected. We are not accurately educating each other. Please do not listen to this and equate it with the fullness of the real work of art!

Walt Is A Very Profound SOB.

What made the experience of listening to Leaves of Grass the most enjoyable?

Reading Walt is like finding great Soul Food and can't stop eating it.

What did you like best about this story?

Twas a large meal of various appetites and all delicious.

What does Ed Begley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Ed reads the poetry as well as I have heard and puts his soul into it but each with it's own significant voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My first Walt W.

Any additional comments?

I recommend it especially for fans of Tennyson.

Begley helped me understand

The musical power and large hearted was of Whitman's poems. Wish it were twice as long!
