Robert Pinsky teaches the next batch of budding poets to mine the gems of past masters, from Frank O’Hara to Ginsberg. He explains the underpinnings of great lines in plainclothes, by hand selecting work by Robert Frost, William Carlos Williams, and Marianne Moore.

Broken into four sections, Freedom, Listening, Form and Dreaming Things Up, Pinsky urges readers to explore meaning through listening.

…The hurt is not enough:

I long for weight and strength

To feel the earth as rough

To all my length.

          -“To Earthward,” Robert Frost
