Book Description

15 April 2006
Within these pages Mary Oliver collects twenty-six of her poems about the birds that have been such an important part of her life-hawks, hummingbirds, and herons; kingfishers, catbirds, and crows; swans, swallows, and, of course, the snowy owl; among a dozen others-including ten poems original to this volume. She adds two beautifully crafted essays, "Owls," selected for the Best American Essays series, and "Bird," one that will surely take its place among the classics of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gift! 21 April 2008
By Lydia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for a birder friend that never reads poetry and she absolutely loves the book! The book is filled with the sights, sounds, and imagery of nature (in both essay and poetry) as only Mary Oliver can breathe them into life through uncomplicated words and a genuine love of all things.

4.0 out of 5 stars Owls an Other Fantasies: Poems and Essays 8 Aug 2010
By Lois Lambert - Published on Amazon.com

This book was recommended by a priest. It has very subtle Biblical references, but you won't notice that if you are not looking. The poems and essays are wonderful and I highly recommend the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teacher Jan 11 Feb 2010
By Teacher Jan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Before discovering Mary Oliver, I was not much of a poetry fan. However, her poems and essays, to me, are food for my soul. I am a birder, and this particular collection is one of my favorites. She writes simply and her observations speak to the beauty, the danger and the mystery of nature.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bird and Crow 8 Dec 2009
By Michael D. Stevens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading an essay (Bird) and a poem (Crow?) in this book, I'm anxious to find and read more of Mary Oliver's work. I tend to favor essays and "Bird" was a special one. If you appreciate good writing read Mary Oliver.

As always, Mary Oliver does not disappoint. She is my favorite living poet. Her observations of nature and her beautiful way of expressing them touch something deep inside.
