New and Selected Poems Author : Mary Oliver Publisher : Total Pages : 200 Release : 2005 ISBN 10 : UOM:39015062614139 ISBN 13 : Language : EN, FR, DE, ES & NL GET BOOK New and Selected Poems Book Description: 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.
