Description

Product Description

The New York Times-bestselling collection of poems from celebrated poet Mary Oliver

In A Thousand Mornings, Mary Oliver returns to the imagery that has come to define her life’s work, transporting us to the marshland and coastline of her beloved home, Provincetown, Massachusetts. Whether studying the leaves of a tree or mourning her treasured dog Percy, Oliver is open to the teachings contained in the smallest of moments and explores with startling clarity, humor, and kindness the mysteries of our daily experience.

Review

"Her compact poems are conversational and teasing, yet their taproots reach deeply into the aquifers of religion, philosophy, and literature . . . Oliver is funny and renegade as she protests cultural vapidity, greed, violence, and environmental decimation and ravishing in her close readings of nature." — Booklist
 
"If you''re one of the many, many fans of National Book Award- and Pulitzer-winning poet Mary Oliver, you''ll very much welcome  A Thousand Mornings." — Shelf Awareness

About the Author

Born in a small town in Ohio,  Mary Oliver published her first book of poetry in 1963 at the age of 28. Over the course of her long career, she received numerous awards. Her fourth book,  American Primitive, won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1984. She led workshops and held residencies at various colleges and universities, including Bennington College, where she held the Catharine Osgood Foster Chair for Distinguished Teaching. She died in 2019.

I GO DOWN TO THE SHORE

I go down to the shore in the morning
and depending on the hour the waves
are rolling in or moving out,
and I say, oh, I am miserable,
what shall—
what should I do? And the sea says
in its lovely voice:
Excuse me, I have work to do.

I am in love with these poems
Reviewed in the United States on February 26, 2016
I have never purchased a book of poetry before. I am in love with these poems. It is heartbreaking to know that this volume is so short, and that it will most likely be over in a sitting or two; however, as I read these poems, it feels like an introduction to a friendship... See more
I have never purchased a book of poetry before. I am in love with these poems. It is heartbreaking to know that this volume is so short, and that it will most likely be over in a sitting or two; however, as I read these poems, it feels like an introduction to a friendship that I will visit again and again and again as time passes. These poems are contemporary, profound, and personal. This book will teach you about life; this book will teach you about who you are; this book will teach you how to be a better you. Buy it now. You won''t regret it.

This book is super threadbare and skinny/small to begin with - but I''ve bought poetry books like that before. What I find absolutely ridiculous is that it says there are 96 pages; in actual numbered pages there are only 77...and of those 26 are blank!!! That''s not even counting the ones that have writing on 1/3 of the page. So at best you''re getting 50 pages of writing. Thanks but no thanks; might as well just printout the poems I like from the internet. Waste of money and totally inaccurate description; sending them back!

This was my introduction into the writings of Mary Oliver. I heard many of the messages in my own voice as if I had lived the life of the poet. If you are touched by nature, you will be touched by these verses.

Not sure it is a real Penguin published book or a knock off.
Reviewed in the United States on September 1, 2020
The printing is not centered on the pages and some of the page numbers are cut off. If this is not a knock off, then shame on Penguin Press for crummy quality control. Too bad because I was going to give as a gift. I kept it but it is a disappointment. The Da Capo Press... See more

A spiritual trek trough the mundane, nature, and ultimately to the God of your understanding. One transports her earthly existence into ephemerality.

I haven''t yet got far into this book but what a treasure, such connections. If I wake in the middle of the night, I read one of these pieces and am soothed back to sleep pondering it.

Times of sheer delight
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 10, 2019
I loved this book by Mary Oliver. I read one poem each morning as part of my prayer. Almost all of the poems spoke to me. The longer I spent with them the more they reached some deep place within me and helped me to to be present, alert and aware of the wonder of nature

Often funny, always thought provoking. I don''t read much poetry but I am very glad to have found out about Mary Oliver. She died recently but her voice can still be heard.
