Incredible and Inspiring
7 February 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is not just some short, music video-like films about poems, most of the poems are read by the authors as images strengthen their words. I would recommend this too any English teacher working today, as well as frustrated writers out there who say that poetry is dead. This short series is inspiring.
