About the Author

Walt Whitman (1819-1892) was an American poet, essayist, and journalist. A humanist, he was a part of the transition between transcendentalism and realism, incorporating both views in his works. Whitman is among the most influential poets in the American canon, often called the father of free verse. His work was very controversial in its time, particularly his poetry collection Leaves of Grass, which was described as obscene for its overt sexuality.

Edoardo Ballerini is an Italian-American narrator, actor, and writer who is best known for his role in The Sopranos. He has appeared in over forty films and television series and received numerous AudioFile Earphones Awards for his narration.
