Old Heart

W. W. Norton, 2007

Plumly's new collection of poetry, his tenth, confronts and celebrates mortality. Rita Dove calls Plumly "the successor to James Wright and John Keats, with a marvelous ear for the music of contemplation." Old Heart was named as a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award and the National Book Award. You can read selected interviews with Plumly at Norton Poets Online.
