Marge PiercyStreaming Video - 2006
At heart, Marge Piercy is a utopian, possessing what Margaret Atwood described as "a view of human possibility...that makes the present state of affairs clearly unacceptable by comparison. In this program, Bill Moyers and Ms. Piercy discuss topics such as the political and religious themes behind much of her writing and the curiosity and imagination that fuel her creativity. Readings by Ms. Piercy showcase "The Book of Ruth and Naomi," "To be of use," "Kaddish," "The hunger moon," "For the young who want to," "Coming up on September," and others. Filmed at the Biennial Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival.
