Early printing of the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet’s handbook on poetry. Octavo, original wrappers. Signed by Mary Oliver on the title page. In fine condition.

With passion, wit, and good common sense, the celebrated poet Mary Oliver tells of the basic ways a poem is built-meter and rhyme, form and diction, sound and sense. Drawing on poems from Robert Frost, Elizabeth Bishop, and others, Oliver imparts an extraordinary amount of information in a remarkably short space. “Stunning” (Los Angeles Times).
