I hope I'm never too sophisticated to appreciate Mary Oliver. ( )

Archibald McLeish said of Mary Oliver that she had discovered the world we all live in and do not see and cannot feel. In this new volume she demonstrates, perhaps more affectionately than ever before, "what it means to be human and what is worthwhile about life," or, more simply, why the poet wakes early.

I've heard a great number of Mary Oliver's poems throughout my years in creative writing programs. I have never heard one I didn't not love. I was enthusiastic to finally read a complete volume of her work and I picked Why I Wake Early for no reason whatsoever. It was just the first to grab my attention.

I didn't love this collection the way I'd hope I would. There are several possible reasons for this. Perhaps this isn't Oliver's best collection. Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood. Or maybe Oliver's work is best when read aloud. There were many great moments in Why I Wake Early, but there were also several times when I felt the imagery was cloying. At times I felt like I was reading a collection of Ruth Bell Graham, a poet who wrote some beautiful and inspiring poems, but who isn't particularly known for her innovative verse. And so I feel like I missed something. I blame myself. Nevertheless, Oliver's poetry was beautiful and certainly full of skill. I just didn't connect fully. Because I loved everything I'd heard before this and because I'm sure it was all my fault I didn't relate, I'm compromising on my rating and promising that I'll give Oliver another try someday in the near future.

I appreciate this book because it holds a lot of optimism and love, which are ideas often overlooked in lit. A while ago I found this girl lecturing on how "deepness" and the highest truths can only be found in the darker themes in literature, but I think that is very untrue and I think it is very unwise to believe it. If someone can find solace and strength in nature and remember why life is worth living, isn't that just as important?

So I wanted to like this book a lot more than I did, but most of the poems were forgettable. There were a few poems in the very beginning and very end that I really enjoyed. ( )

These poems are like the maturation of what Annie Dillard is after in Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. There isn't a whole lot of anguished befuddlement about God, Nature, good, evil, etc. Accepting things, seeing, looking, and feeling all come more easily, without the self-conscious struggles Dillard puts herself through. Or maybe Oliver had been through it too, when she was young? Must read more. ( )
