From the National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize winning poet Mary Oliver, a collection of evocative and haunting poetry and prose

“Oliver’s poems are...as genuine, moving and implausible as the first caressing breeze of spring.” —New York Times

In her first collection since winning the National Book Award, Mary Oliver writes of the silky bonds between every person and the natural world, of the delight of writing, of the value of silence.

The collection features the fourteen-part poem “In the Blackwater Woods,” as well as “At the Lake” and the prose poem “Snail.”

Praise For…

"Oliver is a cool and modest presence in the world her poems summon. Sometimes, she is a festively whimsical one. But neither her modesty nor her shows of whimsy are more interesting than the deft, clear, unpredictable path she traces between them." — Publishers Weekly

"Oliver's poems are thoroughly convincing – as genuine, moving, and implausible as the first caressing breeze of spring." — New York Times

"Mary Oliver's poetry is fine and deep;it reads like a blessing. Her special gift is to connect us with our sources in the natural world, its beauties and terrors and mysteries and consolations." — Stanley Kunitz
