Gallery of Images

This section makes available all known photographs of Whitman. The images—more than 130 in total—are accompanied by substantial notes about both the photographs and the photographers who created them.

Audio Recordings

Here we provide access to a recording of what is thought to be Whitman's voice reading several lines of the poem "America," as well as modern recorded readings of "Poets to Come" and "Song of Myself."

Whitman in Film

This section, still in development, provides links to films and film-related resources that offer useful insights into Whitman's life, work, and continuing influence.
