Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The New York Times has called Oliver's poems "thoroughly convincing - as genuine, moving, and implausible as the first caressing breeze of spring." In this stunning collection of forty poems she writes of nature and love, of the way they transform over time. And the way they remain constant. To quote Library Journal: "From the chaos of the world, her poems distill what it means to be human and what is worthwhile about life."

West Wind is a book of poetry that would appeal both to readers who appreciate poetry, as well as those who find poetry difficult to comprehend. In her writing, Mary Oliver explores with a sense of wonder, the amazing connectedness of nature. Among a wide variety of topics, her powerful observations and gentle interpretations allow the reader to ponder beginnings , endings and the curiosities of life.
