Bill Moyers' Fooling with Words

Excerpts from the two-hour special FOOLING WITH WORDS WITH BILL MOYERS:

The act of making a poem requires that somebody's listening," says poet Mark Doty. And listen they do. More than 12,000 people turned up to listen and laugh, to sigh and weep, to cheer and exalt in the pure pleasure of the spoken word at the 1998 Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, where Bill Moyers returned to cover the poetry beat.
