Abstract:

Robert Pinksy, Poet Laureate of the U.S. for a third term, finds his inspiration in common things, transforming the culturally unpoetic into masterpieces of verbal expression. In this program, Pinsky does readings of several of his poems. In addition, Bill Moyers and Pinsky discuss topics including Pinsky's love of the English language, the pervasive influence of history, and the flourishing of poetry on the Internet.

Artist/activist Amiri Baraka has managed to alter not merely the face of African-American writing, but its very sound and substance as well: among the first to promote Africanized English, he also introduced an element of jazz into poetry. In this program, Bill Moyers and Mr. Baraka discuss topics centering on the black experience in America.
