Description

Following the success of At Blackwater Pond, this second CD from best-selling poet Mary Oliver contains a selection of 37 previously published poems and four as yet uncollected, read by the poet in her steady, magnetic voice. Oliver recites from the full range of her poetry - from her classic nature writing, to her verses for her mischievous bichon Percy, to her ever-deepening spiritual poems. Many Miles will be a most welcome addition to the collections of her fans.

Thank you for being slow & speaking of beauty.

Would you consider the audio edition of Many Miles to be better than the print version?

"The flowers I want to bring to you, still pale and wet" she says in her own voice, instead of touching finger over lines, and she does, a bouquet of reds and blues, brighter than any sunset. (Yes.)

What was one of the most memorable moments of Many Miles?

For me it is the little mice running through her imagery, next to the pine cone she brings to our hands, opening in a happy place, as poems bring us.

What about Mary Oliver’s performance did you like?

I love how with her poetry she proves the delightful point that poetry is relevant, that all of us need poetry, if well written, or if clunky and in our own minds, we still need the poetry. I love how she enters my mind.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Invitation to Happiness

Any additional comments?

The poem about water, so relevant, so important, proving the vitality of mystery.

Natural

Beautifully read by the poet. A treat for the music alone. Takes outside inside, and vice versa.

Classic Oliver

Never a disappointment, always wonderful to hear her poetry in her own voice. Reading her beautiful reflections in print is one experience but having it read to you is such a treat!

Quick paced but worth the listen

Mary Oliver reads her own words exquisitely, if a little rushed. Listening, it was at times difficult to tell where one poem ended and the next began. I also noticed a couple of typos in the chapter titles. But overall, an excellent listen.

Wonderful....but could be paced more slowly

Lovely selection of Mary Oliver's fine work. My only suggestion would be to allow a little more space between each poem, and possibly some music. For me, it was paced too quickly and did not allow time for any reflection between poems.

Nature lovers will enjoy hearing these poems.

Relaxing read akin to sitting outdoors on a sunny day taking in nature. If you like Robert Frost you'll like this.
