5.0 out of 5 stars modern master 17 Jan 2012

Robert Hayden was my teacher many years ago, a very gentle, talented man. He is an important Black poet and an important, essential American poet whose work will last.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deserves to be Read More Widely 16 May 2011
By R. Albin - Published on Amazon.com
This collection contains all the work of the fine American poet Robert Hayden. An African-American raised in Detroit, Hayden's work includes, but is hardly restricted to, a number of fine to outstanding poems inspired by African-American history. His superb memorial poem for Frederick Douglass is a good example of work in this vein. There are also a number of fine poems drawn from his life experience and his Bahai faith. Overall, I prefer his earlier work, but Hayden was a consistently powerful and interesting poet throughout his career. Like many excellent American poets, his work deserves to be read more widely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hayden's poetry 19 May 2008
By Rebecca L. Rowley - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Is there a resurgence of Hayden's poetry or am I finally hearing more about this sensitive poet who wrote about a glorious future at a time when there was little hope for equity. He dared to speak of a spiritual solution to war and eulogized black heros who get little more than a paragraph in our history books. I appreciated the author's introduction, and especially enjoyed the diversity of Hayden's work in this collection.
5.0 out of 5 stars One of My Favorite Poets 31 Aug 2013

One of Hayden's poems, "Those Winter Sundays," has been my favorite poem since I first read it. I have found a number of his other works to be equally powerful.
