Mary Oliver: new and selected poems Vol 1

by Mary Oliver

Winner of the 1992 National Book Award for Poetry

One of the astonishing aspects of (Oliver's) work is the consistency of tone over this long period. What changes is an increased focus on nature and an increased precision with language that has made her one of our very best poets…There is no complaint in Ms Oliver's poetry, no whining, but niether is there the sense that life is in any way easy…These poems sustain us rather than divert us. Although few poets have fewer human beings in their poems that Mary Oliver, it is ironic that few poets also go so far to help us forward. Stephen Dobyns, New York Times Book Review
