Thinking Aloud
U.S. Poet Laureate Emeritus Robert Pinsky
Robert Pinsky is one of America's leading poets, but he is most famous for having been  the United States Poet Laureate three separate times.  He is widely thought to be one of the most effective poet laureates in the history of the prestigious position.  Today on Thinking Aloud, he shares with host Marcus Smith his ideas about poetry as an oral art, recites some of his own poems, and argues for the importance of poetry to American society.—Original airdate: 11/5/2014
