""I would rather write poems than prose, any day, any place"" writes Mary Oliver, ""Yet each has its own force."" Her Long Life: Essays and Other Writings intersperses a few verses among prose pieces as various as ""Dog Talk,"" ""Emerson: An Introduction"" and ""Where I Live."" As ""Sand Dabs, Nine"" puts it, ""The energy of attempt is greater than the surety of stasis.""
