The A List with Alison Lebovitz

Billy Collins, Season 4 Episode 10

Season 4, Episode 10

Host Alison Lebovitz heads to the University of the South to talk with former U.S. Poet Laureate, Billy Collins.  He's been called the class clown of modern American poetry--and it's a role he seems quite comfortable in.  In a field that's dominated by perceptions of pretension and complexity, Collins's work is a refreshing take on what poetry has to offer for the average American reader.  In this episode, we'll find out how Billy's gift for humor has allowed him to gain both critical respect and mass appeal in equal doses.
