Publisher: Beacon Press; First edition. edition (1992, Sep 23rd).
Winner of the 1992 National Book Award for PoetryA New York Times Notable Book of the Year 1993"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. . . .These poems sustain us rather than divert us. Although few poets have fewer human beings in their poems than Mary Oliver, it is ironic that few poets also go so far to help us forward."-Stephen Dobyns, The New York Times Book Review moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability
