Howdy folks! I'm back with my 3rd book review. This time, it's a poetry book. The book I'm reviewing this evening is "The Collected Poems of Maya Angelou," published in 1994 by Random House. I read Angelou's book "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" back in high school and loved it. Fast-forward to when Bill Clinton first got elected President. It was then that I heard a lovely poem written and narrated by Maya Angelou. I guess I'm showing my true political colors, lol! Actually I was never that much into politics, and nowadays I pretty much dislike it altogether given the nasty shit that's been going on in the world. But back to the book. Then a couple years ago I saw that one of her poetry books was available in audio from the Library of Congress, so I jumped at the chance.

I'm glad I read the book. I like poetry, and these poems are no exception. Ms. Angelou definitely has a gift for writing, and a wonderful voice. The narrator did a nice job. She even did the same accent. So if you are a Maya Angelou fan and haven't read this book, it is definitely one you'll want to put on your reading list. I for one am so glad I did. I'm not going to bother summarizing these poems, because Angelou pretty much covered a wide array of topics in this collection. I hope to find "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" in audio, and re-read that one too.
