Reviews

It has always seemed, across her 15 books of poetry, five of prose and several essays and chapbooks, that Mary Oliver might leave us at any minute. Even a 1984 Pulitzer Prize couldn't pin her to the ground. She'd change quietly into a heron or a bear and fly or walk on forever. --Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times

"Oliver's poetry is of the Earth, and about the Earth, and as these poems give voice to the planet, they render human life more beautiful, more sentient, more meaningful." --Karen McCarthy, ForeWord "These are life-enhancing and redemptive poems that coax the sublime from the subliminal." --Sally Connolly, Poetry "Mary's Oliver poetry is fine and deep; it reads like a blessing. Her special gift is to connect us with our sources in the natural world, its beauties and terrors and mysteries and consolations." --Stanley Kunitz "Oliver's poems are thoroughly convincing--as genuine, moving, and implausible as the first caressing breeze of spring." --New York Times Book Review
