The Poetry Of America (Audiobook)
Read by William Dufris, Richard Mitchley, William Hootkins & Lorelei King (Unabridged: 1hr 16mins)
Featuring poems by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman, Louisa May Alcott, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Edgar Allan Poe & others.
Poetry can sometimes be elusive, the real meaning layered beneath another. In this volume American Poets give voice to their Nation, their hopes and aspirations.
Whitman, Emerson and Dickinson are joined by Poe, Holmes, Dunbar and others to pleasure our ears and minds with a rambling stroll through their works. It doesn’t define America but it captures her mood and flavours her soul of these early times in the American dream.
