Praise

Mary Oliver, who won the Pulitzer Prize in poetry, is my choice for her joyous, accessible, intimate observations of the natural world . . . She teaches us the profound act of paying attention—a living wonder that makes it possible to appreciate all the others.—Renée Loth, Boston Globe

“It has always seemed . . . that Mary Oliver might leave us 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 off forever. Her poems contain windows, doors, transformations, hints on how to escape the body; there’s the ‘glamour of death’ and the ‘life after the earth-life.’ This urge to be transformed is yoked to a joy in this moment, this life, this body.”—Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times

“‘My work is loving the world,’ Oliver tells us . . . She has always done that work . . . in poems of considerable beauty. Now she rises, not above the world, but through it.”—Jay Parini, The Guardian
