Product Description

Review

Mary Oliver moves by instinct, faith, and determination. She is among out finest poets, and still growing. --ALICIA OSTRIKER, The Nation

These are life-enhancing and redemptive poems that coax the sublime from the subliminal. --SALLY CONNOLLY, Poetry

I think of Oliver as a fierce, uncompromising lyricist, a loyalist of the marshes. Hers is a voice we desperately need. --MAXINE KUMIN, Women's Review of Books

Format: Paperback
This is the first book of Mary Oliver's poems I've read and have bought some others as a result. Her words transported me to moments of real depth and honesty. I found my 'thirsty soul' moved and refreshed by such poems as 'The Place I Want To Get Back To' and 'When I Am Among The Trees'. A book to read and return to!

Stunning collection and great food for the soul.

Reads as very honest, raw emotion and a deep searching.

It has been a delight and a wonder to 'discover' Mary Oliver for myself. She says things I have always 'known' but says them with such gentle precision I am left shaking my head in wonder.
