Dana Gioia

Dana Gioia, chairman of the National Endowment of the Arts, talks with Marcia Franklin about the role of government in funding of the arts and the controversies that surrounded the agency in the '90s.

Gioia, an accomplished poet, also talks about his craft, which includes writing the libretto for the opera, "Nosferatu," which had its world premiere in Boise.
