Read in March, 2010

I did not enjoy this as much as her work in Thirst, though there are some great texts included here. I very much prefer Wendell Berry's poems on nature, who writes beautifully and has a rich, nuanced eye. Oliver is observant, but I don't appreciate her perspective as much as Berry.
