Review

"Mary Oliver is beautifully and accurate in this book of poetry and prose about birds. . . all rendered with the precision of a line-drawing of a single feather that puts the entire wing into perspective."

Mary Oliver is beautiful and accurate in this book of poetry and prose about birds . . . all rendered with the precision of a line-drawing of a single feather that puts the entire wing into perspective.--Orion

"These poems and essays dazzle us and then send us into deep reflection about the marvels and mysteries of life that come to us in the sightings, songs, and soaring of birds."--Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Health

"Owls and Other Fantasies will bring much pleasure to the many readers who claim Oliver as their favorite poet, as well as to people new to her work." --Judy Clarence, Booklist

"This...title will bring much pleasure to the many readers who claim Oliver as their favorite poet, as well as to people new to her work."--Library Journal
