Review quote

Praise for Mary Oliver's poetry: 'These are life enhancing and redemptive poems that coax the sublime from the subliminal.' --Sally Connolly, "Poetry" 'Mary Oliver's poems are natural growths out of a loam of perception and feeling, and instinctive skill with language makes them seem effortless. Reading them is a sensual delight.' --May Swenson 'The gift of Oliver's poetry is that she communicates the beauty she finds in the world and makes it unforgettable.' -"Miami Herald"
