Former Poet Laureate of the United States Robert Pinsky examines the influence of Shakespeare on important poets of the 20th and 21st centuries—from Yeats and Eliot to Langston Hughes and Allen Ginsberg, with readings from the plays addressed in those poems by actors Andy Grotelueschen, Jennifer Ikeda, Merritt Janson and Will Swenson. Robert Pinsky will also perform newly-composed poetic collages that combine Shakespeare's sonnets with modern poems.
