Poet Mary Oliver Captivates Marquette
Venerated American poet Mary Oliver makes very few public appearances. But she came to Marquette on Nov. 12, 2012, and experienced something that made her feel “giddy.”
That’s because the event — at which she read from her collections of poetry and received an honorary degree — began with a video of Marquette students reading her poem "What I Have Learned So Far." See the full story here.
The video was made for the inauguration of Rev. Scott R. Pilarz, S.J., an avid Oliver fan, when he became Marquette’s 23rd president in September 2011.
