Rita Dove, the U.S. poet who is a Consulting Editor for Interlitq, and a contributor to Issue 6 of Interlitq, terms Stanley Plumly, the recipient of this year´s Truman Capote Award, “the successor to James Wright and John Keats”:

The Immortal Evening: A Legendary Dinner With Keats, Wordsworth, and Lamb, written by Stanley Plumly, Distinguished University Professor and Director of Creative Writing at the University of Maryland and winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and the Paterson Poetry Prize, is the winner of the 2015 Truman Capote Award for Literary Criticism in Memory of Newton Arvin.

The $30,000 award—the largest annual cash prize in English-language literary criticism—is administered for the Truman Capote Estate by the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop.

Plumly will accept the award on Oct. 29, 2015, in a public event at the UI that will include remarks on the literary topic of his choosing. Called “the successor to James Wright and John Keats” by the poet Rita Dove, Plumly is a poet and nonfiction writer whose works include biography and literary criticism. Plumly, author of the highly acclaimedPosthumuous Keats, is also the Poet Laureate of the state of Maryland.

The book was chosen by an international panel of prominent critics and writers—Terry Castle, Garrett Stewart, Michael Wood, John Kerrigan, Elaine Scarry, and Joyce Carol Oates—each of whom nominated two books. Books of general literary criticism in English, published during the last four years, are eligible for nomination. After reading all the nominated books, each critic ranked the nominees.
