We gave it a B+

The United States of Poetry is an eclectic collection of 37 poems (which is the soundtrack to the PBS series) is a quick, thrilling plunge into the art of the spoken word. The diversity of voices included here (Joseph Brodsky, Lou Reed, Maggie Estep, square-dance callers) challenges assumptions about where poetry starts and ends. Spontaneous, irreverent, and inspiring.
