Abstract:

In this edition of Moyers & Company, Bill Moyers welcomes former U.S. Poet Laureate Rita Dove, who received the National Medal of Arts from President Obama. Dove served two terms as Poet Laureate, the youngest and the first African-American to be named to that prestigious position. Through an intimate conversation and select readings, Moyers and Dove explore American history, language, culture, and ideas. They also talk about the responsibility and controversy that comes with editing a prestigious anthology, as Dove was recently tasked for The Penguin Anthology of Twentieth-Century American Poetry.
