Product Description


'In Montgomery and Other Poems' by Gwendolyn Brooks is a welcomed addition to her existing canon that, with this collection, now spans six decades. Like much of Brooks' writing, this new collection is necessary reading for anyone interested in contemporary poetry. Thrust into the national spotlight when she received the Pulitzer Prize in 1950 for her second volume of poetry, Annie Allen, Gwendolyn Brooks has remained a consistent, caring and critical communicator. 'In Montgomery' presents us with honest, enlightened, often provocative and moving poetry. The voices in these poems invite us to witness stark realities of our everyday existence, yet they share a vision and celebration of the written word.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay... 17 Feb 2004
By Shamontiel L. Vaughn - Published on Amazon.com
I wasn't feeling the long poems at all. It may be because there was a lot of name-dropping but I wasn't familiar with the names or maybe because the subject changed too much, but I usually enjoy long poems. I did enjoy the shorter poems like the one about the uncle who sits too close and the one about kids thinking school is vacation cause home is the worst place to be. She still has a knack for making simple words express deep emotion which is the reason why I love Brooks and hate Shakespeare (who tried to make the simplest task deep when it really wasn't). I respect Brooks and I love her poetry, but I just wasn't into this book. There were only about five poems that I'd enjoy reading again.
