The Collected Poetry of Nikki Giovanni: 1968-1998 (Hardcover)
The complete early work of the renowned African-American poet.
"Nikki Giovanni is one of our national treasures."--Gloria Naylor
This omnibus includes her first seven volumes of poetry from her early years, 1967 to 1983: Black Feeling Black Talk; Black Judgement; Re: Creation; My House; The Women and the Men; Cotton Candy on a Rainy Day; and Those Who Ride the Night Winds. A timeless classic, it is both a reflection of the changes in her own life and an evocation of a nation's past and its present.
“One of the finest poets of our time. . . Her work still resonates.”
“Fiery yet personal . . . an ample and diligent introduction, chronology and notes to individual works.”
“Wise and mischievous, Giovanni is a must-read at every stage if her happily, still growing oeuvre.”
“What a powerful first impression she made. This collection of early work is an excellent reminder.”
