Everyone who appreciates fine American poetry should read "The Complete Collected poems of Maya Angelou".

The best living poet of our time, Maya Angelou is just phenomenal. Her work ranges between grit and wit, overcoming obstacles, and observances of life. Her words moved me to tears as I read this volume, and caused me to pause often to reflect on her ideas.

My personal favorites are "Caged Bird", "Reverses", and "Still, I Rise".
