Owls and Other Fantasies: Poems and Essays
by Mary Oliver
Within these pages Mary Oliver collects twenty-six of her poems about the birds that have been such an important part of her life--hawks, hummingbirds, and herons; kingfishers, catbirds, and crows; swans, swallows, and, of course, the snowy owl; among a dozen others--including ten poems original to this volume. She adds two beautifully crafted essays, "Owls," selected for the Best American Essays series, and "Bird," one that will surely take its place among the classics of the genre.
