In Old Heart, Stanley Plumly confronts and celebrates mortality in all its rich variety--in the detailed natural world at hand, in the immediacy of loss, and in his own personal encounters. Archetypal, sometimes even allegorical, the material and spiritual levels in these poems speak in one voice and seek the common vision of the empathic imagination. This is Plumly's finest book of poetry--a sustained meditation on "old memory, old worry, old matter from the softest tissue deep."
