Title Details

Audio Original
Running Time
50 Min.


Mary Oliver was one of our greatest and most beloved poets. She is often quoted by people across ages and backgrounds - and it's fitting, since she described poetry as a sacred community ritual. "When you write a poem, you write it for anybody and everybody," she said. Mary died on January 17, 2019, at the age of 83. She was a prolific and decorated poet whose honors included the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. In this 2015 conversation - one of the rare interviews she granted during her lifetime - she discussed the wisdom of the world, the salvation of poetry, and the life behind her writing.
