              Here's a virtual movie of the great Walt Whitman reading his best known poem O Captain! My Captain! The Poem paid tribute to President Abraham Lincoln and was written shortly after Lincoln's assassination. "O Captain! My Captain!" is an extended metaphor poem written in 1865 by Walt Whitman, about the death of American president Abraham Lincoln. The poem was first published in the pamphlet Sequel to Drum-Taps which assembled 18 poems regarding the American Civil War, including another Lincoln elegy, "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd". It was included in Whitman's comprehensive collection Leaves of Grass beginning with its fourth edition published in 1867. Walt Whitman composed the poem "O Captain! My Captain!" after Abraham Lincoln's assassination in 1865. The poem is classified as an elegy or mourning poem, and was written to honor Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States. Walt Whitman was born in 1819 and died in 1892, and the American Civil War was the central event of his life. Whitman was a staunch Unionist during the Civil War. He was initially indifferent to Lincoln, but as the war pressed on Whitman came to love the president, though the two men never met.[1] The fallen captain in the poem refers to Abraham Lincoln, captain of the ship that is the United States of America. The first line establishes the poem's mood, one of relief that the Civil War has ended, "our fearful trip is done." The next line references the ship, America, and how it has "weathered every rack", meaning America has braved the tough storm of the Civil War, and "the prize we sought", the end of slavery, "is won". The following line expresses a mood of jubilation of the Union winning the war as it says "the people all exulting;" however, the next line swiftly shifts the mood when it talks of the grimness of the ship, and the darker side of the war. Many lost their lives in the American Civil War, and although the prize that was sought was won, the hearts still ache amidst the exultation of the people. The repetition of heart in line five calls attention to the poet's vast grief and heartache because the Captain has bled and lies still, cold, and dead (lines six through eight). This is no doubt referencing the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and Whitman's sorrow for the death of his idol. In the second stanza the speaker again calls out to the captain to "rise up and hear the bells," to join in the celebration of the end of the war. The next three lines tell the captain to "rise up" and join in on the revelries because it is for him. He is the reason for their merriment: "for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills; for you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding; for you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning". Everyone is celebrating what Lincoln accomplished; this is not only the abolishment of slavery but also the formation of the Union and the coming together of people. Again the poet calls to the Captain as if he had never fallen. The poet does not wish to acknowledge the death of his beloved Captain, and he even asks if it is some dream (line 15) that the Captain has fallen "cold and dead". The third stanza begins in a somber mood as the poet has finally accepted that the Captain is dead and gone. Here there is vivid and darker imagery such as "his lips are pale and still" and the reader can picture the dead Captain lying there still and motionless with "no pulse nor will". In line 17, the poet calls out "My Captain," and in line 18, the poet refers to the Captain as "My father". This is referring to Lincoln as the father of the United States. Lines 19 and 20 are concluding statements that summarize the entire poem. The United States is "anchor'd safe and sound". It is safe now from war with "its voyage closed and done, from fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won". The country has accomplished its goal of the abolishment of slavery and the unification of people after a fearful war. In line 21, the examples of apostrophe, ordering "shores to exult," and "bells to ring" are again referring to how the nation is celebrating while "I with mournful tread, Walk the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead". “O Captain! My Captain!” became one of Whitman’s most famous poems, one that he would read at the end of his famous lecture about the Lincoln assassination. Whitman became so identified with the poem that late in life he remarked, “Damn My Captain...I’m almost sorry I ever wrote the poem.

              • The Return of the Heroes - Walt Whitman - Poem - Animation

                Here's the great Walt Whitman reading his post American Civil War poem "The Return of the Heroes" The Poem expresses an optimism tinged with great sadness it was a pre World War One taste of how terrible mechanised machine gun war could be. On May 23 and 24, 1865, Walt Whitman witnessed the momentous Grand Review of the Armies in Washington, D.C. He watched as the Army of the Potomac, the Army of the Tennessee and the Army of Georgia paraded down Pennsylvania Avenue, past a reviewing stand in front of the White House where President Andrew Johnson (having just slightly more than a month prior taken up the role after Lincoln’s assassination), General Ulysses Grant and others saluted the troops. The experience made a deep impression on Whitman, and he wrote many poems about the return of the heroes and the event that symbolically marked the end of the Civil War. He wrote so many, in fact, I found it difficult to choose which to here quote. Whitman was no stranger to the horrors of war. Having come to Washington in 1862 in search of his brother, George, who was reported wounded after the Battle of Fredericksburg, Whitman was so moved by the suffering he saw in military hospitals that he chose to remain in the capital. He secured a low paying job as a government clerk and spent much of his time over the next two years volunteering as a nurse in army hospitals. He had no medical experience. Little was needed. He found he could be most comforting to the sick and wounded through the most simple of tasks…writing letters home for them, bringing them a morsel of food, keeping them engaged through conversation. He estimated that during his time in Washington, he made some 600 visits to various hospitals. It is no wonder, then, that the Grand Review made such an impression on him. The suffering he had witnessed so closely was at an end. And Whitman understood that the victory lay not on the “red, shuddering fields” of battle but in the faces of the blue-clad soldiers, “youthful, yet veterans.” He also understood that these men had a difficult transition to make. In his “The Artilleryman’s Vision” he writes a haunting account of what we would today call post-traumatic stress disorder. In “How Solemn as One by One,” another poem about the Grand Review, he writes how the soldier’s faces appear as masks, but, knowing something of their experiences, he feels he can “see behind that mask, that wonder, a kindred soul.” His “Return of the Heroes,” part of which is quoted above, goes on for several stanzas, more than I could really include here. The primary theme is his hope that soldiers of the North and South will take up different tools, “Toil on heroes! Toil well! Handle the weapons well.

                  Here's the great Walt Whitman reading "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d". When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd is a long poem in the form of an elegy written by American poet Walt Whitman (1819–1892) in 1865. It is a 207-line poem written in free verse and employing many of the devices and conceits of the pastoral elegy. The poem was written in the Summer of 1865 during a period of profound national mourning in the aftermath of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln on April 14, 1865. Despite the poem being an elegy to the fallen president, Whitman neither mentions Lincoln by name nor discusses the circumstances of his death. Instead, Whitman uses a series of rural and natural imagery including the symbols of the lilacs, a drooping star in the western sky (Venus), and the hermit thrush, and employs the traditional progression of the pastoral elegy in moving from grief toward an acceptance and knowledge of death. The poem also addresses the pity of war through imagery vaguely referencing the American Civil War (1861–1865) which ended only days before the assassination. When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd was written ten years after publishing the first edition of Leaves of Grass (1855) and it reflects a maturing of Whitman's poetic vision from a drama of identity and romantic exuberance that has been tempered by his emotional experience of the American Civil War. Whitman included the poem as part of a quickly-written sequel to a collection of poems addressing the war that was being printed at the time of Lincoln's death. These poems, collected under the title Drum-Taps and Sequel to Drum-Taps, range in emotional context from "excitement to woe, from distant observation to engagement, from belief to resignation" and "more concerned with history than the self, more aware of the precariousness of America's present and future than of its expansive promise."[1] First published in Autumn 1865, When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd—along with 42 other poems from Drum-Taps and Sequel to Drum Taps—was absorbed into Leaves of Grass beginning with the fourth edition published in 1867. Although Whitman did not consider the poem to be among his best works, it is compared in both effect and quality to several masterpieces of English literature, including elegies such as John Milton '​s Lycidas (1637) and Percy Bysshe Shelley '​s Adonais (1821).

                      Just a bit of an experiment to see what I could do with my iphone, I used a mixture of the native video features and the hyperlapse app to stabilise some of the walking bits. The whole video was edited on the phone in imovie and then added the start and end parts in after effects. No special effects, no filters, what you see is what I got. Thanks for taking a peek :)
