capture a young reader or to keep an older reader in touch with Whitman's voice. I've read this volume several times and never fail to be moved by the work included within. There are hundreds of volumes of Whitman selections available, but this one is a good choice to keep the reader in touch with the "songs of a master" versifier.
The poems that I particularly regretted not being included in this are "Song of the Open Road" and "When I Heard the Learn'd Astronomer." There are others, but those are two I often read. But to be fair, most of Whitman's great work is contained in two poems, the magisterial "Song of Myself" and the passionate "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry." I've never warmed up to such old chestnuts as "I Hear America Singing" and "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd," but I can and have read "Song of Myself" and "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" countless times. In fact, the reason I wanted a highly portable, but attractive edition of Whitman's poems was so that I could carry it about with me. One of the few books that I've come very close to wearing out (and I treat my books with great care) is the Library of America edition of Whitman's poetry and prose. But it simply doesn't fit into a messenger bag. This lovely little Everyman edition does.
So while this slender little volume doesn't quite have my ideal collection of Whitman's poems, it does at least have the most essential. And the book itself is lovely and inviting. I heartily recommend it to anyone desiring a choice selection of Whitman's poetry to carry with them either into the woods or onto a commuter train.
