        Shirt

        What is a cherished garment made of? What is a poem made of? Labor and raw materials, tradition and innovation, influences both local and global, and art are stitched into both. In this video excerpted from Poetry in America, host Elisa New catches up with fashion designer Johnson Hartig, Bergdorf Goodman's Betty Halbreich, shoe designer Stuart Weitzman, and design and poetry students from the New School at New York Fashion Week to discuss Robert Pinsky's "Shirt." Back in Boston, Pinsky helps trace the intricate history of the garment and the poem. This resource is part of the Poetry in America Collection.
