In this video excerpted from Poetry in America, ponder W.H. Auden's World War II era reflections on suffering in "Musée des Beaux Arts" with Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, with journalist and ethicist David Brooks, with poet, professor, and painter Peter Sacks, and with host Elisa New. How are ordinary people to regard, and respond to, suffering they have not caused? Who can help us find the way? The statesman, the journalist, the poet, the painter? This resource is part of the Poetry in America Collection.
