    • POEM: Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou (1/27/2008 4:15:00 PM)

      To be entirely fair this whole website is a joke. The comments for this poem are 90% female and the rest of the 10% written by men are mostly coherently negative when evaluating this poem.

      To be fair again, it would be people searching for 'maya angelou' specifically that will end up leaving a comment here, and who would search for this poet.

      I'm sure Maya is a woman of many talents, this poem however does not exhibit any.

      This website is proof of what can happen when anyone (but not everyone) is given a voice.

    • POEM: Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou (8/20/2007 5:05:00 PM)

      Justine, I am sorry but that is a weak argument; people who use the 'It's not the same type of poetry/song/film' routine are simply trying to polish a turd. I expressed my opinion, as have many other people. You not only single me out, but also single out the structure of my sentences, whilst at the same time condemning me for commenting on people who are too lazy to even try and spell.

      I don't wish to compare this poet with Shakespeare, I would just like to see her poems where they belong: around number 200 in the rankings.

      Why not insult me again with your superior grasp of English grammar?

      Maybe then you'll feel even more empowered.

    • POEM: All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter by John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (8/18/2007 4:09:00 AM)

      Great poem but there is no symbology in it, it is Aragorn's poem, and meant to convey the fact that he is a king underneath even though he is a dirty ranger, and that he will come out someday and take his throne. Also the 'Blade that was broken' is Narsil which was forged again into 'Anduril'. Tolkien himself stated at the beginning of the book that he hates allegory in all it's forms, and that the book is not symbolic or allegoric.
