Description du produit

Revue de presse

One of the astonishing aspects of Oliver's work is the consistency of tone over this long period. What changes is an increased focus on nature and an increased precision with language that has made her one of our very best poets . . . There is no complaint in Ms. Oliver's poetry, no whining, but neither is there the sense that life is in any way easy . . . These poems sustain us rather than divert us. Although few poets have fewer human beings in their poems than Mary Oliver, it is ironic that few poets also go so far to help us forward. -Stephen Dobyns, New York Times Book Review

"One would have to reach back perhaps to [John] Clare or [Christopher] Smart to safely cite a parallel to Oliver's lyricism or radical purification and her unappeasable mania for signs and wonders." -David Barber, Poetry

"I have always thought of poems as my companions-and like companions, they accompany you wherever the journey (or the afternoon) might lead . . . My most recent companion has been Mary Oliver's The Leaf and the Cloud . . . It's a brilliant meditation, a walk through the natural world with one of our preeminent contemporary poets." -Rita Dove, Washington Post

"Mary Oliver moves by instinct, faith, and determination. She is among our finest poets, and still growing." -Alicia Ostriker, The Nation

Présentation de l'éditeur

When New and Selected Poems, Volume One was originally published in 1992, Mary Oliver was awarded the National Book Award. In the fourteen years since its initial appearance it has become one of the best-selling volumes of poetry in the country. This collection features thirty poems published only in this volume as well as selections from the poet's first eight books.

Mary Oliver's perceptive, brilliantly crafted poems about the natural landscape and the fundamental questions of life and death have won high praise from critics and readers alike. "Do you love this world?" she interrupts a poem about peonies to ask the reader. "Do you cherish your humble and silky life?" She makes us see the extraordinary in our everyday lives, how something as common as light can be "an invitation/to happiness,/and that happiness,/when it's done right,/is a kind of holiness,/palpable and redemptive." She illuminates how a near miss with an alligator can be the catalyst for seeing the world "as if for the second time/the way it really is." Oliver's passionate demonstrations of delight are powerful reminders of the bond between every individual, all living things, and the natural world.

Le livre entier est une ode à la nature et à la vie avec toutes ses imperfections parfaites.
Quel dommage que cette poétesse ne soit pas traduite en français...

Oh, Mary! How I love you so. This book is as delightful and enriching as any of her other collection of poems. Mary knows nature. She knows presence. She knows how to love her life. She is a genius who never seems to feel the need to be "clever." ("Clever is for cocktail parties" a poetry teacher once told me.) Oliver expresses her wisdom in the purest, clearest, most sacred poems. Whenever I feel down, I read "Why I Wake Early": "Hello sun in my face," I say.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 What will ambition do for me that the fox has not already done? 13 février 2015
Par Mark - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
New and Selected Poems Vol. 2 by Mary Oliver: You get a lot of bang for your buck here, but I prefer getting the books of hers I love and skipping the ones I don’t. Her books tend to have strong themes that get lost in a greatest hits collection. That said I like this better than the first volume of selected poems. Excerpt (I like how she says “a right answer,” rather than “the right answer”): “Have I not thought, for years, what it would be/ worthy to do, and then gone off, barefoot and with a silver pail, to gather blueberries,/ thus coming, as I think, upon a right answer?/ What will ambition do for me that the fox, appearing suddenly at the top of the field,/ her eyes sharp and confident as she stared into mine,/ has not already done?”

About Kindle version: Formatting is well-done except for a few stray hard hyphens.

Many of Mary Oliver’s poems flow with an anthem-like lyricism that often attests to the grandeur and mystery of the natural world. She plays the role of a quiet witness in order to observe and learn what life has to teach: how happiness is possible if you resign yourself to the rapture and beauty of the world around you. She wants to be invested in the glory and energy of nature and understand its holiness, its closeness to God. She loves all flora and fauna and wants to connect to them. Her compassion for life allows her to look upon the world with gratitude and appreciation. The wildness and sheer power and intensity of nature is more than miraculous; it is her source of bliss and strength. She allows the power of the natural world to keep her memory active with visions and dreams of her elemental self becoming one with the universe. Her poetry is an attempt to achieve that union, and few poets can inspire the way she does.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 She Is A Sublime Witness To The Natural World! 15 décembre 2005
Par Grumple Dumple - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Mary Oliver overwhelms my visual and auditory senses with her language; it is precise and controlled; her imagery is brilliant. Using carefully chosen words she captures the "essence" of living things in the natural world.

Each work is masterful and seems a deep meditation that leaves a reader feeling refreshed and somehow privy to a personal, even private part of the poet as an investigator and witness to nature and its secrets.

Each time I read one of her poems I feel as if she is inviting me into the woods with her to witness the natural world in all of its sacredness.

I have yet to read a poem of hers that disappointed me.

Her mood-infused poem "Rain" (the first poem in the book) is sublime; and "Mushrooms" is glorious!

Read "Mushrooms" slowly and listen to the language; see the imagery in the mind:

Rain, and then
the cool pursed
lips of the wind
draw them
out of the ground---
red and yellow skulls
pummeling upward
through leaves,
through grasses,
through sand; astonishing
in their suddenness,
their quietude,
their wetness, they appear
on fall mornings, some
balancing in the earth
on one hoof
packed with poison,
others billowing
chunkily, and delicious---
those who know
walk out to gather, choosing
the benign from flocks
of glitterers, sorcerors,
panther caps,
shark-white death angels
in their torn veils
looking innocent as sugar
but full of paralysis:
to eat
is to stagger down
fast as mushrooms themselves
when they are done being perfect
and overnight
slide back under the shining
fields of rain.

My God! I don't think that even a mushroom would know itself in that way.

She is a sublime witness to the natural world.

Mary Oliver is one of my favorite poets -- and let me tell you, I don't have many "favorite poets".

I recommend this poetry collection to you!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful collection of poems by Pulitzer Prize winner Mary Oliver. 23 août 2013
Par Joseph J. Truncale - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I admit to not liking most of the contemporary poems and poets I have read in various poem publications and books. Many of the so-called modern free verse poems today are incomprehensible and absolutely meaningless with no purpose except to confuse anyone reading them. The old masters will always remain my favorite poets. However, after reading a recently published Mary Oliver book of poems, which I enjoyed, I decided to read more of her poems. This poetry collection (New and Selected Poems by Mary Oliver) was published in 1992 and includes a large number of her poems created between 1963 and 1992. Her poetry is often beautiful, easy to understand and have real meaning.

This poems in this volume are organized into the years they were written. New poems (1991-1992), from House of light (1990), from Dream work (1986), from American primitive (1983), from Twelve Moons (1979), from The night traveler and Sleeping in the forest (1978 also includes five poems not previously published in any volume), from The river Styx, Ohio and other poems (1972), and from No voyage and other poems (1963-1965). There are so many wonderful poems in this collection that it is difficult to choose any favorite ones, but here is just a small sample of the ones I really liked a lot. When death comes, The waterfall, October, The sea, Wild Geese, Starfish, Sunrise, Lightening, and The first snow.

In conclusion, if you are a fan of Mary Oliver's poetry, you should check out this volume.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Soul: An old warrior's poetic tribute)
