Ardella Montgomery will lead a discussion of American Primitive: Poems by Mary Oliver . Copies of this title will be available at the Library's Check-Out Desk. This program is free and no registration is necessary.
Summary: 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. . . . 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.
