Evidence: Poems by Mary Oliver
Regular price $15.00
In this new volume of forty-seven poems, Mary Oliver delves even deeper than she has in the past into the mysteries of life, love, and death. Exploring the evidence presented to us daily by the natural world, inspired by the familiar lines from William Wordsworth: "To me the meanest flower that blows can give / Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears," Oliver offers poems of arresting beauty and insight. Never afraid to shed the pretense of academic poetry, never shy of letting the power of an image lie in unadorned language, Oliver's work here reflects on the power of love and the great gifts of the natural world.
