Mary Oliver’s new collection, a companion to the well-received Owls and Other Fantasies and Blue Iris, completes the three-volume series. The Truro Bear and Other Adventures brings together ten new poems, thirty-five of Oliver’s classic poems, and two essays, all about mammals, insects, and reptiles. The award-winning poet considers beasts of all kinds: bears, snakes, spiders, porcupines, humpback whales, hermit crabs, and, of course, her little dog, Percy; much loved by dedicated fans, he appears and even speaks in thirteen poems, the closing section of the volume.
