A Gentle Voice in the Peaceful Wilderness
Oliver has planted her midwestern roots in the shifting sands of Cape Cod. Her solid education and a genuine love and sensitivity for the bounty and variety of the natural environment nurture and inform her poetry. What Molly Malone Cook understood of photography, Mary Oliver develops in her sensitive word pictures, pictures of beauty and understanding, focusing on that which is true and good. She combines an alchemic mix of insightful understanding with an equally astute sense of word. The gentle grace of her poems is more than simply 'feel good'; it instructs and enlightens.
