In a series of fascinating conversations with eighteen American poets, and in dozens of poems,
The Language of Life celebrates language in its "most exalted, wrenching, delighted, and concentrated form," and its unique power to recreate the human experience: falling in love, facing death, leaving home, losing faith, finding God. The poets who speak with Bill Moyers about their work and their lives form a dazzlingly diverse chorus of American voices. From Linda McCarriston to Gary Snyder to Adrienne Rich and more, all testify to the clarity of the poet's voice in a culture where language has been corrupted by commerce and politics and all give hope that from such a wide variety of racial, ethnic, and religious threads they might yet weave a new American fabric. "Listen, said the storytellers of old, listen and you shall hear," explains Bill Moyers.
The Language of Life is a joyous, life-affirming invitation to listen, learn, and experience poetry's exhilarating power.
