by | Read by Amanda Gorman

Poetry & Drama • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Inaugural poet Amanda Gorman delivers this collection of poetry with precision and purpose. She lifts her words off the page and offers her perspective on social and global issues. Gorman is timely in her diction. She recites deliberately and uses a rhythm that can be easily followed. Her steady monotone allows listeners to focus more on her words and less on her voice. Although there is little fluctuation in her tone, she has her moments. She calls forth hope and light amid every hardship that fills our present-day lives. Closing with the 2021 inaugural poem, she reminds listeners "to rise" and create a better tomorrow for America. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2022]
