30 POETS, 30 DAYS

“Horizontal Grandeur” by Bill Holm

Clip: Special | 1m 24s | Video has closed captioning.

Writer Bill Holm was decidedly vertical –closer to seven feet tall than six—but in his poetic essay “Horizontal Grandeur” he tells us that “as a mountain is high a prairie is wide.” Holm knows the subject matter well. He was born in Minneota, Minnesota in prairie country. Holm was the subject of a 1990 Twin Cities PBS special. These were the documentary’s closing words and images.
