Old Poet, New Poet

Posted on October 4, 2012 by


The National Endowment for the Arts just posted a great video featuring Philip Levine, the former Poet Laureate of the United States (age 84) and Kristen Dupard, the 2012 Poetry Out Loud National Champion (age 18).

Dupard recited Levine’s poem, “What Work is” in the POL finals and in this video she recites it again for Levine and then the two discuss the origins of the poem and more.  Check it out….What Work Is-video
