...Invictus is by William E. Henley......I do not like much poetry.....but 'Still I Rise', is one of the most moving and powerful pieces of literature of our day. You can feel the rumblings of motivation rising within you as you read it---it summons the power of our ancestors as you read it... YOU FEEL this poem with all your heart--or I fear you have no heart and you remember that feeling for years after you have read it!

It is a magnificent poem that the author not only wrote, but earned through her own life.

This book would make excellent Christmas gifts of inspiration.

Maya Angelou is a wonderful woman and an inspiration. Her books are like sweet melodies that flow through your head. I am 13, when I read her words of rhythm and rhyme I can't stop reading. She writes words of wisdom and truth and that's something most authors don't do! This book is a blessing and I say again a true inspiration!

This book captured me. I could see how everyone felt in the poems. Maya Angelou hit my heart, I would say that she has a way with words. And Still I Rise is my favorite poem. I believe it reaches out not only African Americans but to all Americans. Maya Angelou's poems let us also see into her life. If you read her biographys you would be able to compare her poems to her life and see where she got her ideas for her poems. Everytime I need to find peace I pick up her book of poems and I read, to hear her words make me feel comfort. Maya Angelou is my favorite poet and has made me very intrested in the world of poetry. When I hear her poems I can feel the hard times that African Americans had. Yet when I need to find peace I can read these poems. All of her books have shone me that life isn't easy but that everyone can make it throught it if they have some kind of help. I believe that everyone should read this book just to get some idea of what life is like, and to see that even though life is hard you can still make it through it.

A Kid's Review on November 4, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This book is filled with wonderful, powerful poetry that really awakened me to the troubles of African Americans in that time of history. Diego Rivera's paintings in the book are staggering and breathtaking. This is a must-see for any ameteur or lover of poetry.

I'M 14 YEARS OLD AND BEEN READING MS.ANGELOU'S BOOKS SINCE I WAS 10. TO ME HER BOOKS ARE THE ONLY REASON WHY I STILL GO ON. SHE INSPIRED ME TO WRITE POETRY AND COME OUT WITH THE TRUTH EVEN THOUGH IT WILL HURT MANY PEOPLE.MS. ANGELOU IS LIKE MY GUARDIAN ANGEL THAT THE LORD HAVE SENT DOWN TO WATCH OVER ME. WITH OUT HER WONDERFUL WORDS WHICH I RELATE TO I DON'T KNOW HOW FAR I'D BE TODAY. SO LIKE MAYA I'M KEEPING MY HEAD UP. REMEMBERING ALWAYS THAT SOMETIMES I'M GONNA FALL BUT THE IMPORTANT THING IS I HAVE TO GET BACK UP.SO IN HER WORDS "I RISE".

I think it was the best book i have read in 13 and a 1/2 years. Miss Angelou is my favorite poet, I love all of her books. She is my role model. Out of 13 years she is the best black poet that the world has ever had ( i think). She has been through many hard times like me, and others in this world. She holds her head up high, and never lets anything get in her way. if i could I would love to grow up and be just like her.

Every time I read "Still I Rise" I start crying. I can connect because I have encountered prejudice as well. I think this is a great book!

Angelou proclaims in verse, despite the persecution, despite the degradation "And Still I Rise." She is bloodied but not bowed. The whole country can join Angelou in this goodbye to defeat and to humiliation. Great book. I will buy another. Great Seller.
