From the Introduction:
Who wouldn’t want to know more intimately the passions and antipathies of the authors of the poems they were about to read, learn their writers’ creative process, eavesdrop on of their interior monologues regarding inspiration and revision, craft and mystery? … I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
proves once more that poetry is essential to our lives, and that “men die miserably every day / for lack / of what is found there.”
, two of the greatest American poetry magazines of the past fifty years, Plume
is eclectic in the most purposeful and pleasurable of ways. Thoughtful, entertaining, capacious, with no use for aesthetic axe-grinding, its highly-enriched oxygen will add energy to your life!
Plume establishes its place on the literary scene somewhere above fashion, apart from all questions of Hipster vs. … whatever. The work within its pages has the unpredictable, idiosyncratic strength of things that haunt, and may endure.
