Description
"Poets live the lives all of us live," says Bill Moyers, "with one big difference. They have the power—the power of the word—to create a world of thoughts and emotions others can share. We only have to learn to listen." In this companion volume to his PBS series, Moyers interviews 34 American poets and celebrates that power to distill human experience, whether falling in love, facing death, leaving home, playing basketball, losing faith, or finding God. From David Mura describing his Japanese American grandfather's experience in relocation camps to Sekou Sundiata stitching the magic of his childhood church in Harlem to the African tradition of storytelling, from Gary Snyder invoking the natural wonder of mountains and rivers to Adrienne Rich calling for honesty in human relations, these voices offer a rich understanding and appreciation of American life.
