For Your Enjoyment: A conversation with former US Poet Laureate and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner W.S. Merwin at his home in Hawai'i

I got to see WS Merwin read once while I was in graduate school and he was great. His contemplative poetry often takes nature as its subject and while not overly complicated, his poems have a great resonance to them.

In this conversation with W.S. Merwin at his home in Hawai'i his connection to the environment, a sense of place and language are explored, they walk around his beautiful grounds a little and he reads a number of poems. Big shout out to PBS for continuing to produce great educational and arts programming.
