Best if you love poetry...
20 March 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I don't know why, but there is no narrator listed here in the credits. It sure sounded like J.K. Simmons---an actor who seems to be VERY popular on TV and in commercials in recent years. So, when the credit rolled at the end, I saw it was correct--it was Simmons (in case you care).

As far as how enjoyable this show is, it all depends very strongly on whether or not you love poetry. If you adore it, you'll probably adore the show. If you are a plebeian (like me), you will probably be bored--not just because Walt Whitman was a poet but, uncharacteristic of the series, you have lots of folks reciting Whitman's work. In addition to this, the show has the usual interviews, pictures and narration--all discussing Whitman's work and life. The only part that really appealed to me was discussing the erotic and homo-erotic aspects of Whitman's seminal work, "Leaves of Grass". Interesting...but still not enough to keep me interested. Not a badly made episode--but one with somewhat limited interest to the average person.
