Robert Bly’s “Collected Poems”

February 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Come to Plymouth’s Guild Hall on Monday, Feb. 11, at 7 p.m., to celebrate a Minnesota poet of international renown, Robert Bly, and the release of his complete Collected Poems. 
The New York Times reviewer wrote: “Ever since 1962, when ‘Silence in the Snowy Fields’ established him as a poet of desperate sincerity, he has been a paragon of Jungianism against the brutality of capitalism and militancy. He’s hardly changed. But everything else has, and with it the significance of a poet who believes that poems should be near the center of life.”
There will be a talk by Robert Bly’s biographer, along with readings of Bly’s poems by his children, friends and admirers. Co-hosted with Rain Taxi Review of Books, the event is free and there is plenty of parking.
Books will be available for purchase from Birchbark Books.
