    2. There s a hole in the literary landscape now that Baraka s gone Provocative, political, improvisational and articulate, Baraka was a force in American letters and his work still reads as revolutionary and necessary Readers are often familiar with what gets anthologized the early Baraka, the poet of Preface to a Twenty Volume Suicide Note and An Agony As Now the latter mistakenly listed in TOC as As Agony As Now , the poems of internalized self hatred I am inside someone who hates me and painful [...]

    4. When I read poetry, I usually find one or two poems that are my favorite For T.S Eliot, it is The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock For e.e cummings, it is anyone lived in a pretty how town For Amiri Baraka, it is Preface to a Twenty Volume Suicide Note I discovered LeRoi Jones as Baraka was then known in the late 1960 s while in college I read the Dead Lecturer cover to cover and still have the paperback book on my shelves So I was very excited when I discovered this collection of his lifetime wor [...]

    5. Disappointed Out of the whole collection there were maybe three or four poems I truly liked As a fan of the Beat movement I had high expectations for Amiri Baraka, especially after having read Preface to a Twenty Volume Suicide Note which I believe shows the poet at his best, when he really shines in a lyrical and lucid way As much as I like and appreciate the stream of consciousness work, which he does very well, he quickly becomes repetitious and predictable in a collection this big I think I [...]

    6. I think I need to read this book for a second time And maybe for the third time after that.Baraka sounds like just my type of a poet if I have a type, that is He is bold and humorous, and his poems are perfect mixes of those two His way of writing makes you want to both scream at every wrong thing he s talking about and just sit and keep reading staring at the pages with a tiny, broken smile on your lips Personally, I think his writing is worth of being read aloud to the crowds.Not 5 but 6 out o [...]
