The U.S. Poet Laureate has a unique opportunity to shape America's literary terrain by fostering public appreciation of poetry and by continuing to produce his or her own work. This News Hour collection (from both the "MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour " and the "News Hour with Jim Lehrer") profiles six such honorees at the onset of their terms. In addition, each laureate reads a few of his own poems.
