SRG: Mary Oliver’s Upstream with Donna Ward: Tuesday 16 May 4.30 – 6.00 pm

Mary Oliver’s poetry has won numerous awards, including the Pulitzer Prize.
In this session we will focus on Oliver’s latest book of selected essays, Upstream, in which her themes continue to be the intersection between the human and natural world.
We will explore her take on being human in this world where birth, life and death is, simultaneously, an incidental occurrence.
And, we will discuss these essays in relationship to the recent collection, The Abundance, from Oliver’s contemporary, Annie Dillard, who also explores the great mysteries of existence.
