Remembering Mary Oliver (with A.M. Juster and Allison Backous Troy)

Welcome to Libromania, a podcast for the book-obsessed from the Close Reads Podcast Network. Each week David Kern will be chatting with authors, biographers, designers, collectors, critics and other people who help make book's so worthy of our attention.

This week, guests Allison Backous Troy, a writer for IMAGE's "Good Letters" blog, and A.M. Juster, the poetry editor for First Things, join the show to discuss the work and legacy of Mary Oliver, who passed away last week at age 83. They discuss the very personal nature of her work and influence, the way she inspired so many people (inside and outside of the world of poetry writers), and what her passing means for the state of contemporary poetry.
