The Truro Bear and Other Adventures: Poems and Essays Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From a poet who teaches us the beauty and magic of the natural world comes a reminder that this world includes the creatures, with their / thick fur, their shy and wordless gaze. Their / infallible sense of what their lives / are meant to be.

In The Truro Bear and Other Adventures, Mary Oliver brings together ten new poems, thirty-five of her classic poems, and two essays, all about mammals, insects, and reptiles. The award-winning poet considers beasts of all kinds: bears, snakes, spiders, porcupines, humpback whales, hermit crabs, and, of course, her beloved and disobedient little dog, Percy, who appears and even speaks in thirteen poems, the closing section of this volume.

As Renee Loth has observed in the Boston Globe, Mary Oliver, who won the Pulitzer Prize in poetry in 1983, is my choice for her joyous, accessible, intimate observations of the natural world . . . She teaches us the profound act of paying attention.
