Summary
In the grand tradition of Thoreau, Emerson, and Whitman, William S. Merwin is considered one of America's most prominent environmental poets. In interviews conducted at his home in Hawaii, the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet discusses his relationship with nature as the inspiration for his work, and the responsibility he bears as eloquent spokesman for the natural world. We see Merwin living simply in a cabin by the sea, dividing his time between writing and tending his gardens. His work in the area of conservation, particularly in preserving Hawaii's rain forest, is reflected in readings by Merwin from major works, including "A Mask for Janus," "The Lice," "The Carrier of Ladders," "The Rain in the Trees," "The Vixen," and "Lament for the Makers." This is a probing and insightful portrait of a great American literary figure
