    2. The first, possibly, or the only poetry anthology I read all the way through. Many recurrent sentiments of being against white, blonde, blue eyed people, lots of venom and sorrow. Too bad none of this will be on the GRE literature test coming up in a month for me. Perhaps tides will change.

    3. This anthology is stuffed with fabulous poetry reflecting a variety of ethnic traditions and other perspectives. I used it in my "Literary Diversity" course the first semester I taught it but honestly was overwhelmed by it. This upcoming semester, when I am teaching the class again, I decided to adopt a book by a single author, but I will definitely be returning to this collection in the future.

    4. Great variety in this anthology. It has been particularly useful in teaching a high school literature unit on examining what it means to be American through a multi-cultural lens.

    5. I think this is the most amazing book I ever read in my entire life. I'm learning more about poetry than I expected because I'm trying to become a poet when I grow up! I want people to experience how this book can connect to you faster than you can say, "OMG, this book is awesome"

    6. this is a great collection of poetry. it took me forever to actually get down and read it. but i was very happy with the variety and the poets chosen. inspired me to get a-writing.
