Abstract:

The Poet's View is a unique film series presenting intimate portraits of five major American poets. Filmed on location in Hawaii, Paris, New York, and California, The Poet s View takes the viewer inside the homes and lives of our era s foremost poetic talents, as they reminisce about their formative years, reveal their poetic processes, and read some of their best-known poems. Unprecedented access takes the viewer beyond the public faces of these celebrated poets, as we hear John Ashbery discuss the early days of the New York School, U.S. Poet Laureate Kay Ryan muse on her working-class origins, Anthony Hecht vividly relate his experience freeing the prisoners of Buchenwald, W.S. Merwin recount his odd mentoring by Ezra Pound, and Louise Glück describe the painstaking "miracle" of creating a poem. ABOUT THE POETS - JOHN ASHBERY s first book was chosen by W.H. Auden for the Yale Younger Poets Series, and he has since gone on to win nearly every major America award for poetry. LOUISE GLÜCK is a former United States Poet Laureate, and has received the Pulitzer Prize and the New Yorker s book award in Poetry. ANTHONY HECHT was the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize and the Wallace Stevens lifetime achievement award from the Academy of American Poets. KAY RYAN is the current United States Poet Laureate; her honors include the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize and publication in The Best of the Best American Poetry. W.S. MERWIN is a former Poetry Consultant to the Library of Congress, and has received a Pulitzer Prize and the Bollingen Prize. A supplemental Poet s View DVD is available about poet C.K. Williams. Films in this series: Poet s View: C.K. Williams.
