In Mary Oliver’s prose works, she shows us how writing “is a way of offering praise to the world.” Her handbooks reveal how a poem is built and why this matters for creating and reading. Her essays lead the reader on personal journeys into nature, the writing process, and “sustaining passions: love of the wild world, love of literature, love for and from another person.”
