Virginia Poet Charles Wright Explores “Inexhaustible Power of Words”

The NewsHour travels to Charles Wright's home in Charlottesville, Virginia, where he has lived for more than 27 years. For Wright, poetry is his "reason for living," and his work serves as a sort of autobiography, exploring his relationship with language, landscape, and the idea of God.
