The Poetry of Mary Oliver and Wendell Berry
We will compare the poetry of two of the most important and influential nature poets of our time, both still publishing in their mid-eighties. Our texts will be recent editions of their collected poems (Oliver’s Devotions and Berry’s New Collected Poems) and selected essays (handouts). We will look at the development of their careers and at the different perspectives they offer on the importance of place and on how to be attentive to and live with the natural world. John Knott is Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Michigan. NOTE: THERE IS CLASS ON NOVEMBER 19th (no class on Nov. 21st)
