A stunning collection of four of Mary Oliver's most beloved books of poetry, A Thousand Mornings, Blue Horses, Dog Songs, and Felicity, packaged together for the first time
Throughout her career, Mary Oliver touched innumerable readers with her brilliantly crafted verse. In this box set, containing her four most recently published collections, she returns to the imagery and subjects that have come to define her life's work: transporting us to the coastline of her beloved home, Provincetown; reminding us of what it truly means to belong to the natural world;, celebrating the special bond between human and dog, and expounding on the wild and the quiet within our own hearts. Within every book, Oliver honors life, love, and beauty.
This beautifully designed set is the perfect gift for every occasion, and a wonderful addition to the library of both longtime fans and new readers.
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.
