New and Selected Poems, Volume Two
Covering the last 11 years of her career, this new collection includes 40 new poems and poems hand selected by Ms. Oliver from six books. This book is being designed in conjunction with a re-designed New and Selected Poems, Volume One and each cover will feature the debut of a never before published photo of Mary Oliver. Mary Oliver has been writing poetry for nearly five decades, and in that time she has become Americas foremost poetic voice on our experience of and interaction with our physical surroundings. New and Selected Poems, Volume Two includes new poems on birds, toads, flowers, insects, bodies of water, and the extraordinary experience of the everyday in our lives. In the words of Alicia Ostriker, Mary Oliver moves by instinct, faith, and determination. She is among our finest poets, and still growing. In both the older and new poems, Mary Oliver is a poet at the height of her control of image and language.
