Lawrence Pitkethly says he reads poetry alone, thinks about poetry alone and writes poetry alone. But he'll talk about poetry with just about anybody who's interested. Pitkethly is executive producer of the public television series "Voices and Visions," featuring the work of 13 American poets, and its vision is largely his. The production's innovation was putting words on screen; it's about seeing language. "The key thing, really, was to try and discover the poems," Pitkethly said.

William Styron is one of the country's most distinguished literary figures. His novels "Lie Down in Darkness," "The Confessions of Nat Turner" and "Sophie's Choice" have classic status and permanent places in the academic curriculum.
