Poetry in America, Season 4: "More Perfect Union" Episode Sequence

Production of five short films in the Poetry in America series.

Verse Video Education requests $300,000 from NEH Short Documentaries program to support the completion of five “More Perfect Union” episodes in Season 4 of the public television show Poetry in America. These episodes will form a sequence within the season’s eight-episode lineup. Each episode will focus on an American poem that is preoccupied with the stories that we as a nation tell ourselves. The poems in these episodes represent a range of American styles, traditions, and communities, but they share a rigorous combination of celebratory and interrogatory consciousness, foregrounding questions of historical, civic, social, and aesthetic significance.
