Summary:Li-Young Lee and Gerald Stern offer poems that reveal the deep power of memory to inform and illuminate immediate experience. Stern's Jewish heritage provides him with the direction to resurrect and reconstruct past experiences. Lee's poetry reflects his struggle with his Chinese heritage since he has never lived in Chinese society. Includes interviews with the poets by Bill Moyers.
