i like Sharon Olds a lot. But i'm always vaguely afraid to read her because one of her books is entitled Satan Says. It may be irrational, but it's the same feeling i get when listening to Stairway to Heaven. i just don't want to get close to that side of the occult, even though i don't know the basis for that title. Since Mary Oliver is so close to Olds on the B&N bookshelf, she usually gets the benefit of my fear, and i have bought two of Oliver's books because of it.
