"Whitman and the Moth" by Clive James (poetry reading)
Van Wyck Brooks was a literary historian. His major work was a series he called "Makers and Finders" which charted the literature of the 19th century that shaped American culture. It might have been called "Movers and Shakers" if Arthur O'Shaughnessy hadn't already used that neat turn of phrase.
His book "The times of Melville and Whitman" is available from Amazon.
