Poet Mary Oliver taught at Sweet Briar College from 1991 to about 1995 as the Margaret Banister Writer-in-Residence.  She won a Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1984 and the National Book Award for Poetry in 1992.

 
Dream Work, a collection of forty-five poems, follows both chronologically and logically Mary Oliver's American Primitive, which won her the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1983. The depth and diversity of perceptual awareness -- so steadfast and radiant in American Primitive -- continues in Dream Work. Additionally, she has turned her attention in these poems to the solitary and difficult labors of the spirit -- to accepting the truth about one's personal world, and to valuing the triumphs while transcending the failures of human relationships.Dream Work, a collection of forty-five poems, follows both chronologically and logically Mary Olivers American Primitive, which won her the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1983.
