Maya Angelou's poetry has been a vibrant presence in America for many years and has been brought into the spotlight on occasions such as President Bill Clinton's inauguration. In this collection of poems, including that inaugural offering, "On the Pulse of the Morning," the selections are united by the common theme of celebration rituals, both public and private. These are poems that are meant to be read aloud, and who better than the author? In Angelou's distinctive voice, this short presentation draws on the author's fortitude and joy, and on her feeling of inherent hope at being able to reach out to the world and the diverse humans who share it.
