Walt Whitman explores the freedom of the wanderer, the sorrow of the pallbearer, and the spirit of the adventurer in his remarkable collection of poems, Leaves Of Grass. Both an explorer of cultural thought and a lover of sensual pleasure, Whitman champions the cause of common men, and revels in emotional and physical love. In plain and beautiful language, Whitman redefined the world of poetry. This The Poetry of Walt Whitman on A+ AUDIO study guide was written by Kristen Silva Gruesz, PhD, a professor at the College of William and Mary, and a guest lecturer at both Yale University and Harvard University. This program is presented by Peter Strauss, an Emmy Award winner and accomplished actor and producer who recently appeared in the film xXx: State of the Union and the television series Law & Order.
