FelicityFelicity by Mary Oliver

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Mary Oliver's latest collection is a rumination on love. Unfortunately, it takes her away from the natural world, searching a bit more in the ephemeral. Her strongest work has always been about looking at little moments and finding deeper meaning there. Without that connection to the physical world, there is something just self-helpy and feel good without feeling substantial. There are, of course, some beautiful moments because she's a wonderful writer and poet, but this thin book (the poems are printed on every other page) is a disappointment.
