In a not too distant interview, Mary Oliver answered a question about her hopes for the summer by wishing that the forest fire at Colorado's High Park could be "one hundred percent contained, controlled, stopped, extinguished." Her answer was not a quirk or an anomaly: For this longtime Cape Cod resident, nature has always been central to her work and her being. In her latest collection, the poet who wrote "Come with me/ into the field of sunflowers" entreats readers to see the natural in all its cycle through her eyes. The results are miraculous: Even the marshlands seem majestic. A major book by a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winning poet. Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
