About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for NO VOYAGE by Oliver, Mary.

Description:

Poet Mary Oliver's first book in first U.S. edition-thus, but with 20 poems/11 pages more than British edition published by Dent, two years previous (1963). Nonetheless, this inaugural collection of utterances from the acknowledged present Queen-Mother of modern American verse, now, a half-century old, the holy and iridescent bones of her gentle yet searing vision which binds inner and outer worlds seamlessly, already obvious -- this from the very first page: ".O, I go to see the great ships ride from harbor / And my wounds leap from impatience; yet I turn back / to sort the weeping ruins of my house: / Here or nowhere I will make peace with the fact." Card covers, simply designed with but title and author within a double-ruled rectangular border, and on the rear, likewise bordered, blurbs from poets long eclipsed. Covers, yapp-ishly overlain, age-tanned, and a trifle edge-and-corner-worn. No markings. 67 pp. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, 1965. First American edition of the poet's scarce first book. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Mary Oliver on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. A very nice example. Mary Oliver was described by The New York Times as "far and away, [America's] best-selling poet." She has won both the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and the National Book Award in 1992. Oliver's poetry has been called an "indefatigable guide to the natural world, particularly to its lesser-known aspects" (Kumin, 1993). "Visionary as Emerson [ she is] among the few American poets who can describe and transmit ecstasy, while retaining a practical awareness of the world as one of predators and prey," reviewed The Nation. Holly Prado of Los Angeles Times Book Review noted that Oliver's work "touches a vitality in the familiar that invests it with a fresh intensity.". Seller Inventory # 15065

Book Description Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1965, 1965. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine white, window design to front board in yellow. With the dust jacket. Faint fading to spine and around board edges, trivial rubbing to ends and corners, but an excellent copy in the jacket with light rubbing at the extremities. First US edition, first printing, rare presentation copy, thrice signed by the author and twice by her lover and literary agent Molly Malone Cook: inscribed by Oliver on the half-title, "March 1965 For Walter, Mary", signed on the title page, and inscribed by her on the final text leaf on the verso "still for Walter, Mary"; Cook has also signed the half-title and final text leaf on the verso. The recipient was Walter P. Chrysler Jr. (19091988), the son of the founder of the Chrysler Corporation, who spent much of his life and wealth as a collector and influential patron of the arts. This is the first book of poetry by Mary Oliver (b. 1935), preceded by a very scarce London edition under the same title two years previously, but here published with 19 additional poems.From this debut aged 28, Oliver went on to win the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize (for American Primitive, 1983) among many others, and to become "far and away this country's best selling poet" (The New York Times 18 Feb 2007). The titular poem of this collection had won the Poetry Society of America's annual price in 1962. Primarily a poet of nature, she lived for most of her writing career in Provincetown, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and has been compared to Emerson and Emily Dickinson. The Harvard Review described Oliver's poetry as "an excellent antidote for the excesses of civilization, for too much flurry and inattention, and the baroque conventions of our social and professional lives. She is a poet of wisdom and generosity whose vision allows us to look intimately at a world not of our making." Mary Oliver has always been notoriously retiring, prefers not to give interviews, and very seldom signs her books - such a warmly inscribed presentation copy, therefore, of her debut collection, done at the time of publication and with the inclusion of her lover and literary agent Molly Cook, must be a rare and desirable thing indeed.
