    Although the book arrived in great condition, it did take a little longer than I had hoped - perhaps because of the holidays.

    Poems - by Maya Angelou

    I love Maya Angelou! She could not write anything bad, even if she tried! She is truly a LADY, a SCHOLAR, a SISTER! Need not many words, just go out and buy it, keep it, give it as present! She is very special person in my heart!

    What a collection!

    This little book contains all of my favorite Maya poems; A Conceit, Phenomenal Woman, Still I Rise, Caged Bird. It is small enough to carry around with you when you're in need of a little inspiration, but complete enough that you don't feel you're missing anything. Great collection from an amazing poet!

    a reviewer

    This fantastic book of verse and poetry is a must read. It¿s filled with golden nuggets. I keep a copy in my car for inspirational reading. One of the most moving poems is ¿Still I Rise.¿ The words of this poem remind us that the spirit is capable of rising above all odds and obstacles. Allowing for normal reflection of our youth is ¿Harlem Hopscotch.¿ One cannot help but reflect on the days of sidewalk games, acting cool, and getting to sing and to hop. The poem allows us to recall such fun days. Having intestinal fortitude is shown in ¿Just Like Job.¿ It reminds us that even though life is a struggle, victory is there when we call upon God our creator. He hears our pleas and attends to our needs. This book is one of encouragement and motivation. As a result, it relaxes the soul.

    Inspirational

    I have heard of Maya Angelou when I was a young girl. I have never really picked up a book of hers until this year. I have been missing out on a lot b/c she is a surpurb writer and very inspirational. I look forward to reading more of Maya Angelou's books and other African American Aurthors. Go Maya! Thank you for sharing your words w/ the whole entire world. Dee, Miami, FL

    what inspiration really is

    Maya Angelou knows how to write poetry from the heart - a gift few have. I turn to her for inspiration and confidence in my own poetry, and I know through her work anyone can learn to perservere.
