|Robert Bly’s News of the Universe|
News of the Universe reveals how poet, translator, activist and gadfly Robert Bly has influenced America’s cultural landscape over the last fifty years. A farmer’s son, a graduate of Harvard, a Navy veteran, an outspoken critic of the Vietnam war, Bly was among the first to translate Pablo Neruda, Rainer Maria Rilke, Rumi and introduce them to an American audience. Working with Joseph Campbell, and Bly’s bestseller Iron John, provided a renewal into the study of mythology and ritual. Now in his 85th year, Robert Bly has done the hard spadework to lift morale in unsettling times. A film for all lovers of poetry, ideas and imagination.” -from San Francisco Film Society
