EVENT:          For more than 30 years, Plumly has published eight volumes of poetry and many of those poems are elegies for friends, fellow poets and his mother. In Plumly’s newest work “Elegy Landscapes: Constable and Turner and the Intimate Sublime,” which also is the title of his lecture, he stages a book through the eyes of the paintings of two influential painters, John Constable and J.M.W. Turner, and how their lives influenced their works.

His work has been supported by the Guggenheim Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
