Brought together for the first time here are all of Maya Angelou's published poems -- including "On the Pulse of Morning," her inaugural poem -- in a handsome hardcover edition.
From her earliest collection of poetry (Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water 'fore I Diiie, LJ 10/15/71) to her latest (On the Pulse of Morning, delivered at the inauguration of President Clinton on January 20, 1993), Angelou's work never fails to grip the imagination. In this anthology, she comments on love, traveling, and aging.

Favorites moments for me include reading Maya Angelou and recalling her in Portland's Heathman Hotel Lounge listening to Dave Frishberg play the piano. Read morePublished 6 days ago by James R C Baker

I love having all of Maya's poems together in one book. The type print is not too small. I keep it on my coffee table and everyone enjoys reading at least one poem.Published 3 months ago by Kathy
