A Man Writes to a Part of Himself

"A Man Writes to a Part of Himself features a choice selection of Robert Blys poetry and translations, mixed with conversation and scenes from his family farm and northern Minnesota retreat. Bly talks about his boyhood, his wanderings in New York City, his first attempts to write poetry and his eventual growth into one of Americas liveliest poets and essayists.

Narrated by the late poet Thomas McGrath and created by Greg Pratt and Mike Hazard, the program explores male/female relationships, the Vietnam War and the importance of fairy tales."
