I’m very disappointed in the publishing of this book. While the cover is beautiful, and the words amazing, the publisher did nothing to celebrate the beauty and impact of the words. The pages are thin and the font tiny. Someone typed the words in 10pt. Times New Roman, and called it a day. The words, written with bold, beautiful impact, are lost on the page. The aesthetics are terrible. I bought 3 of these to give as gifts and am so disappointed. I’m returning them and waiting for the next print in hopes they improve the visuals.

This book contains a forward of a few sentences from Oprah Winfrey, and then the poem that Gorman read at Biden''s inauguration. It is obviously a very short read, with only a few lines on each page.

I appreciate the general sentiment of unity that Ms. Gorman expresses here, and I like the idea of a younger poet being able to provide a voice for the younger generation; as this hasn''t happened very often in recent political history.

However, much like reading the lyrics to a song that I like, the words on the page just don''t feel as powerful as when you hear the author read it in their own, practiced delivery. If you haven''t heard it read aloud, it might be worthwhile to try to find a video, because to me it loses some of its gravity in text form. I would assume though, that most people aren''t buying this because they think that it is the most amazing poem ever written. This is more of a collector''s item, a work that captures the feelings of a specific moment in time. If you simply want to support the poet, or want a physical item to commemorate the event, then this might be worth the price to you.

The words by Amanda Gorman go beyond being poetic. They are deep on so many levels that even after reading and hearing it more 25 times, I unravel something new each time. It’s like a gift that never stops giving. Poetic masterpiece!!
It sums up our current affairs so beautifully; while things are scary currently, if you look with context and through the eyes and lens of Amanda, there is so much hope!! Keep going America.
Some lines just deserve an award by itself...
“The nation that isn’t broken, but simply unfinished”
“We lay down our arms so we can reach out our arms to one another”
“While democracy can be periodically delayed, it can never be permanently defeated”
“For there is always light, if only we’re brave enough to see it. If only we’re brave enough to be it”

Amanda is the light in this never ending shade. Thank you, Amanda!

I absolutely love the inaugural poem, and I love what I know of Ms. Goerman. However, this is just a book with a few lines of her amazing poem on each page. That is it. Nothing else. I really thought there would be something added to enhance it as a book - illustrations, photos of her speaking, more history on her, people''s reactions to her, anything at all.

If you just wanted a printed book of the poem - this is perfect. If you were hoping for something a little more, you might be just as happy printing off the poem at home.

There have been challenges we have faced, but where we are now reminds us of what we can do and overcome.

Amanda Gorman''s poem THE HILL WE CLIMB reminds us of what we have been able to do and what is possible. Delivered in a way that is reflective as well as forward looking, we can see that together there are still great things to achieve---if we allow ourselves to do so.

This is the type of message we should remind ourselves of daily. Our best days are not behind us. There is a chance for us to be greater. It all begins with the decision to make it happen.

I have been looking forward to receiving this beautiful work of poetry since I ordered it on January 22nd. Today it finally arrived and it came damaged. I’m heartbroken. The words are beautiful but the physical book is not. Saddened to have to return it. Hoping that I can order it again and have it arrive safely. Have been so looking forward to having this true treasure of words in my library. The low rating is a reflection of the product coming to me damaged and not a reflection on the beauty of the book.

Update 4/1/2021: I have updated my review. I received my replacement copy already and I am so pleased! It arrived safely with no damage. I will cherish this book for the years to come.

Beautiful poem, sticky cover
Reviewed in the United States on March 30, 2021
I’m excited to have this poet’s powerful words in book form. It’s a simple book of a few lines on each blank white page. The cover has some sticky glue-like smears on both the front and back, which are the reason for 4 stars versus 5.

Best poet laureate of modern time and such an important poem for our times. If everyone could read it and appreciate it like I do, the world would be a much better place! This is the only poem ever that I have purchased and felt I needed to have around for inspiration.

Maravilhoso. Em poucas palavras a poeta atingiu toda a esperança daquele momento de posse. Por certo já se apresenta como um grande nome na literatura estadunidense. É de leitura imperdível.

The book itself is fantastic, I was so excited to purchase it. I was very disappointed that it arrived with someone’s greasy finger marks on the cover. Books are so precious, I’m quite sad it was handled and shipped so poorly.
