From Eleanor (at Carcanet):

The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. has launched a wonderful new Walt Whitman website, to coincide with their current exhibition, One Life: Walt Whitman, a kosmos ... [includes an] online gallery of Whitman portraits ... [and] fascinating recordings of the poet reading America and Leaves of Grass.

    I thank you most assuredly for the wonderful post. Hearing Walt Whitman read America has been one of the most memorable moments in my life. I have replayed it a dozen times this past hour and will no doubt replay it a dozen times over before the night ends. I love the site, and will now plan a trip to the Smithsonian. A million thanks to you.
