"A Man Writes to a Part of Himself" features a choice sample of Robert Bly's poetry and translations, mixed with conversation and scenes from his family farm and northern Minnesota. Bly talks about his boyhood, his wanderings in New York City, his first attempts to write poetry and his eventual growth into one of America's liveliest poets and essayists. Narrated by the late Thomas McGrath, the film explores male/female relationships, the Vietnam War and the importance of fairy tales.
