Praise for the poetry of Mary Oliver:
"Far beneath the surface-flash of linguistic effect, Mary Oliver works her quiet and mysterious spell. It is a true spell, unlike any other poet's, the enchantment of the true maker."--James Dickey
"Oliver's often quiet persona almost always rides a storm of discovery . . . She continues to earn applause and admiration for continuing to provide redemptive mediation and supple praises for nature in a time when so much is under threat."--R. T. Smith, "Shenandoah"
"These are life enhancing and redemptive poems that coax the sublime from the subliminal."--Sally Connolly, "Poetry"

A clear, sensitive but unsentimental voice drawing us back to the things that really matter. Like much great writing it puts into words what we have always known but which has been too long out of sight. See also her 'Poetry Handbook' for insights into the structure of creative writing.

Superb, evocative poetry. This compilation draws on a number of previous works by the author, but unless you have a lot of her books this is a good buy with plenty of good content.
