Poetry in America Season Three: "More Perfect Union" Episode Sequence

Production of five twenty-four-minute episodes of a television series on American poetry.

Verse Video Education requests $250,000 from NEH Short Documentaries program to support production, post-production, & educational programming for a sequence of “More Perfect Union” episodes in Season Three 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.
