    "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is an important work of African-American literature. Written with care and poise, this story unblinkingly shows the impact of hate and discrimination on black lives. I really appreciated having my eyes opened to the struggle that so many have lived and felt inspired to make change in my own life."

    "If these poems were written by another author, they might be more acclaimed, but considering just how important some of the author's other works are, it is difficult to call this one of their best works. This is a collection of poems, and some, individually, really make you think and feel, but there is sometimes little coherence between them, and some are hit or miss. I would have to recommend some of the author's acclaimed autobiographies to newer readers."
