Mary Oliver on Grief

Check out Kathi Wolfe's review of Oliver's latest collection, Thirst, in the Washington Blade. Oliver lost her long-time partner last year and many of the poems meditate on the crippling experience of grief. Although Oliver's early work was incredibly important to me, I had begun to lose interest; it seemed she recycled the same poem over and over. Kathi's review highly recommends this collection and gives me hope.
