Art and Poetry

The Language of Life

with Bill Moyers

Eight Hours



– CBS Sunday Morning

“The poetic sensibility comes alive on TV.” 

– USA Today


– Variety

“Language – real language – is having a come-to-meeting, hand-clapping revival.” 

– New York Times

“The series itself…is pure poetry, a beautifully woven tapestry of spoken words and pictures. It’s not easy keeping poetry readings alive visually without going crazy with visual gimmicks.

But Grubin does it.” 

– New York Newsday
