Read full description of the books Bicycles:
In a career that has earned her accolades, honorary degrees, and awards from both fellow poets and everyday poetry lovers, Nikki Giovanni has established herself as a writer who can entertain and challenge, inform and inspire. Sometimes controversial, sometimes ethereal, but always beautiful, her poems move readers of all hues and generations.
With Bicycles, she's collected poems that serve as a companion to her 1997 Love Poems. An instant classic, that bookâ€”romantic, bold, and eroticâ€”expressed notions of love in ways that were delightfully unexpected. In the years that followed, Giovanni experienced losses both public and private. A mother's passing, a sister's, too. A massacre on the campus at which she teaches. And just when it seemed life was spinning out of control, Giovanni redis-covered loveâ€”what she calls the antidote. Here romantic loveâ€”and all its manifestations, the physical touch, the emotional pull, the hungry heartâ€”is distilled as never before by one of our most talented poets.
