Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

This collection of thirty-six poems is, once again, eloquent evidence of Maya Angelou's continuing celebration of life: Here are poems of love and memory; poems of racial confrontation; songs of the street and songs from the heart.

From AudioFile

Inspiring collections of Angelou reading her poetry. These selections showcase Angelou's smooth, lyrical voice and her warm vitality. Her innate rhythm celebrates her verse and offers the poems to listeners as they should be remembered. Occasionally Angelou comments between the selections, and occasionally she interjects a resonant laugh. R.F.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Format: Hardcover
This book could be an inspiring collection of poems for one who likes them, and takes them in deeply. I don't understand some of them very well, but this collection of poems was well put together, making it easy for just about anyone to relate to. This collection show us her talent to make a rhythmical story outof her past, and present life. This is a book that you will remember because of its good choices of words to use and pointers it hands out about expiriences in life and how to handle them. It is a collection of thirty-six poems celebrating all that she has lived through expressing her love, hatred, unleashing her memories and thoughts and putting them down on paper and making it sound beautiful. It shows you what the african american life was like without so many words and not so boring. Some are so greatly detailed you can make out photographic pictures of what you think it could have been like in the situations she has written down in her book.This is a great book and I would recommend it to everyone that reads poetry.

Ms. Angelou's works are depth digging and revealing. I've loved her works from young and as I become older I've gained an even more deeper and profound appreciation for this and all of her other works. I would recommend this book.

I am a resident of Charleston Southcarolina.I have read other books by Mya Angelou, she is an amazing poet and I would oneday be exactly like her.This is a great book and I enjoy reading it.I am currently writing my poetry book and I am so inspired by her words and how she elegantly put them together.How she expresses her feelings in her poetry, it almost make you feel that you are in her poetry.Only a true authur can make you feel that way.i express my thoughts this way in an purpose that when you read this review,that you would know that Mya Angelou has made an impact on my life that no matter what I do or say it is of great knowledge that I have to keep on keeping on.
