Poetry can be life altering. It can be gritty and difficult. It can be hilarious or heart-breaking. And it's meant to be experienced, so we've included a CD on which you'll hear 44 poems, 39 of which are original recordings-you'll only find them here. You'll hear poets both classic and contemporary, well-known and refreshingly new, including:

―Dana Gioia expresses the hunger of a Vampire's Serenade
―Elizabeth Alexander waits for that second kiss in Zodiac
―Langston Hughes flings his arms wide in Dream Variations
―Marilyn Nelson reads to her class in How I Discovered Poetry
―Paul Muldoon's poem Sideman, brought loudly to life by the band Rackett
―And 39 more poems that are immediate and vibrant

From Lucille Clifton's Here Yet Be Dragons to Edgar Allan Poe's Annabel Lee to Tia Chucha, by Luis J. Rodriguez, Poetry Speaks Who I Am is a collection that is dynamic, accessible, challenging, classic, edgy, and ultimately not quite perfect. Just like you. If you're lucky, it'll serve as a gateway to a lifetime lived with poetry. At the very least, it'll be a good time. Dive in, and happy hunting.
