Dinner with Walt - all things Walt Whitman

Whitman at the National Portrait Gallery

As I have so often said, Whitman’s words are timeless.  It is a sad and terrible fact that wars, around the World, continue to this day. What Whitman wrote of the Civil War 150 years ago is deeply moving and indubitably powerful; his words are as relevant and meaningful today about any war occurring around the globe.

 

Listen as Warren Perry, a researcher and playwright at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. reads a Whitman passage about the Civil War.
