    1. I Now Understand that I Must Never Attend a Poetry Slam, by Jeff. An elusive medium for the competent, in this I am not democratic.Hush.


    2. Found this in an old storage room and was inspired to teach slam poetry to my kids; they loved it. They could relate to so many of the poems and it opened up great dialogue.


    3. I'm currently reading some of the authors in the "Founding Poems" section of this book, for the Poets of Color class I'm teaching. As well, I've just recently read and will reread Miguel Algarín's introduction. I'm so interested especially in the section of this intro re: the Open Room, and the open mic. Having never attended a poetry slam, and having limited the amount of time I've spent at open mics, I was both amused by his description of it and at the same time I admit it was a bit icky. I [...]


    4. A good "gateway drug" for those getting into poetry.And perfect for those who love slam. Most times I wanted more from the poems, though.


    5. A spoken word Bible. Socially and racially conscious mostly unrhymed poetry written mostly in free verse but there are also a few prose monologues. The poems are often several pages long but there are also a few short ones. The anthology is bilingual with many poems written completely in Spanish which makes it good extracurricular material concerning my Spanish studies. Includes poetry by spoken word legends such as Bob Holman himself and Sapphire and Ntozake Shange as the most famous Nuyorican [...]



    6. I make no claims as to whether this book is good or bad. As I am not a big fan of poetry slams, I figure that my opinion doesn't hold that much weight. However, I remember seeing this book in a B&N somewhere in an OC California mall. I opened to a page of a poem that ended"a tree grows in brooklyna tree grows in brooklyna tree grows in brooklyn.F**K that S**t, There's a multicultural garden growing all over the worldd we gotta save itpeace."This isn't a strait quote and I hope I'm not butche [...]


    7. A great introductory book for anyone wanting to learn more about slam poetry, Aloud! is a book that will make you laugh, wince, and cry. The poems within cover a wide range of topics, and it has become a bible for finding poems to perform aloud. Some of the poems are mystifying when seen presented on the page, but if you're trying to "understand" every poem in this book, you are going about it wrong. You won't love every poem, but everyone who reads this book will love a different poem.


    8. This was a gift from my first girlfriend - she got me an autographed copy. While some love obviously fades, I will always love this book for the following poems: The Emperor's Second Wife, by Adrienne SuNo, F*** ME, by Eliza GallagherTrickster Rabbit, by Roland Legiardi-LauraSkinhead, by Patricia SmithSex Goddess of the Western Hemisphere, by Maggie EstepOK. It all seems kind of dated and silly now. But then again, so does that guy in the mirror . . .


    9. I liked this book because the poetry it contains is best read aloud, and the writing begs you not to just read it, but experience it by reading it out loud.It's a great book to browse through and pick something to read; There are a myriad of authors and their diverse backgrounds make wonderful poetic expressions, emotions and ideas to ponder.


    10. like most anthologies, especially those with many dozens of contributors, this has some strong work, as well as some lesser work. this great collection spans nearly twenty years of poets."i dreamt i was this poetawords glitterin brite & boldstrikin' a new rush for goldin las bodegas"~miguel pinero


    11. I loved this collection. It reminded me of college and the vibrant coffee house poetry scene that is sadly gone now. There's a lot of darkness in some of these pieces, there's also humor, innovation and a feminist voice that I think really began to take shape during this time. An excellent collection with some great pieces I'll return to read again.


    12. Ok, this is not explicitly a book of women's, or political poetry, but there's lots of both. One of my favorite poems in there from back in the day is "I am the Sex Goddes of the Western Hemisphere." This reflects my taste from 15 years ago more than today, but whatever. :) I love this book so much that when I moved here I had to buy a copy because I'd left mine in Massachusetts.


    13. Michele sent this book to me for christmas one year. I remember I called in sick to work the next day, just so I could caress the pages a little longer. As a sometime poet, I have to say this book is essential. It cures that often tricky case of writers block with work from people you identify more with than you thought possible. Get yourself a copy today!


    14. There was a lot of interesting stuff in the introduction, but I could not connect to enough of the poetry to want to finish the book. I found myself sort of trudging through it, which while it may have led me to another poem or two that "clicked," isn't the way in which I want to feel while reading poetry.


    15. Before anybody had a solid answer regarding the merits of performance poetry this book was already switching up the questions. Equal parts award winning authors, street prophets and sonic poem tellers, this book is a must read for anyone who reads their poems to a live audience.


    16. I have tgis book for quite some time. A few years actually. Only, now have I completed it. There was a few I enjoyed, U. N. Resolution, At the AIDS clinic, the heatThere were others. Wasn't the best, however.


    17. this is one of the most worn books on my shelf, i found it my senior year of high school and knew it was a guide to my heart, it shaped all my reading throughout college and i still thrill at the words of Maggie Estep.


    18. The only collection of actually contemporary American poetry you need. Read it out loud. To others. And you'll start to get somewhere in life. Or at least, you'll finally be standing up and saying out loud something with real beauty and anger and strength.


    19. This anthology is marvelous. There are so many little jewels in here, full of rhythm and truth. This poetry is exactly what I like it to be, raw, urban and somewhat realI pick up and read from this all the time




    20. Wishing more of the foundational voices could be read here, but excellent collection of the new blood coming from the Poets Cafe.








    21. I first read this in the winter of '97 and still open it up on average of once a year. It's a modern classic, and essential for anyone who loves Gen X poetry.
