Mary Oliver

Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award Winning Poet


“Mary Oliver ranks among the finest poets the English language has ever produced. Whether she’s describing a caterpillar’s transformation…or describing her own mystical connection to birdsong…she almost always can come up with striking, resonant images.…Oliver observes with great sensitivity, and puts her impressions in verse in a way that few can match…her poetry is rigorous, beautiful, well written, and offers genuine insights into the natural world.”

—Eli Lehrer, The Weekly Standard
