Format: Paperback
This "book" -- and I use the term lightly because it is really little more than a photocopy with a slick cover stapled over it -- is not worth purchasing. It provides only the poems from Whitman's Drum-Taps which can be found in any collected edition of the poet's work; in other words, for the same price, you can have all of his poems, not just these. I purchased this book in the hopes it would be the original 1865 edition of these poems, but it's not -- just the revised versions (the poems changed dramatically over the years) rearranged in the original order. What a waste.

This was a gift for my father in law, and I am always running out of ideas for his birthdays & christmas so when I heard a conversation on NPR talking about the benifits to veterans after reading this I bought this for him. Now he doesn't talk too much about his days in Vietnam, but I think that this book has helped him start talking about it & it really did help him a lot.

Whitman's Drum Taps are solid entertainment an en lightening glimpse into Whitman himself. Whitman starts off very jingoistic about the war, and then slowly becomes horrified at the cost as he works in field hospitals, finally ending with a hopeful melancholia.
