Overview

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.

Mary Oliver’s latest book, Upstream, will be published in October 2016 by Penguin Press

Praise

“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
