Mary Oliver has been writing poetry for nearly five decades, and in that time she has become America's foremost poetic voice on our experience of the physical world. This collection presents thirty-two new poems--an entire volume in itself--along with works chosen by Oliver from six of the books she has published since New and Selected Poems, Volume One.
This graceful volume, designed to be paired with New and Selected Poems, Volume One, 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.
"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
