Product Description:
Lucille Clifton and Mark Doty Video (VHS/DVD). Like musicians, Lucille Clifton and Mark Doty stress the rhythmic and musical qualities of poems, the former shaping them with economical, everyday language and the latter with language more baroque. In this program, Bill Moyers and the two poets discuss topics such as the weight of racial memory and the encounter between self and history. Readings by Ms. Clifton showcase "Fury—for Mama," "Donor," "The Times," and "Alabama 9/15/63"; readings by Mr. Doty spotlight "The Embrace," "Fish Are Us," "Michael’s Dream," and "A Green Crab’s Shell." (27 minutes).
