On the occasion of a Lannan Lifetime Achievement Award, Robert Creeley discusses the many influences on his singular poetry: Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, Charles Olson, Louis Zukofsky and Robert Duncan. In addition, he talks about the love of family and friends that has united his influences and his past into a "company," the inner culture of contemporary American poetry.
