Blue Pastures by Mary Oliver

Blue Pastures by Mary Oliver. 1995 Harcourt Brace/ Harvest Original, first paperback edition, 122 pages. Mary Oliver was a Pulitzer and National Book Award winning prolific poet who was greatly inspired by nature. Her career in poetry was unusual in that her books actually sold well. In her New York Times obituary: "For her abiding communion with nature, Ms. Oliver was often compared to Walt Whitman and Robert Frost. For her quiet, measured observations, and for her fiercely private personal mien (she gave many readings but few interviews, saying she wanted her work to speak for itself), she was likened to Emily Dickinson." Blue Pastures consists of fifteen short prose pieces.

Condition: VG. Inscription on end paper.

"I never met any of my friends, of course, in a usual way---they were strangers, and lived only in their writings."
