about this book

Brought together for the first time, here are all of Angelou's published poems--including "On the Pulse of the Morning," her inaugural poem--in a handsome, collectible hardcover edition. The complete texts of Angelou's previous volumes of poetry--Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water 'fore I Diiie; Oh Pray My Wings Are Gonna Fit Me Well; And Still I Rise; Shaker, Why Don't You Sing?; I Shall Not Be Moved; and On the Pulse of the Morning--have been reset and redesigned for this edition.

"You will hear the regal woman, the mischievous street girl; you will hear the price of a black woman's survival and you will hear of her generosity. Black, bitter, and beautiful, she speaks of our survival."--James Baldwin
