"You will be told this is not a problem, / Not your problem. / You will be told now is not the time / For change to begin, / Told that we cannot win. / But the point of protest isn't winning; / It's holding fast to the promise of freedom, / Even when fast victory is not promised." (FURY & FAITH). The mesmerizing young woman who stood up and spoke words of hope at the 2021 presidential inauguration, National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman here evokes a shipwrecked moment in history and transforms it into a lyric of reckoning and healing. In this collection (formerly titled The Hill We Climb) Gorman explores history, identity, and erasure through vivid language in an imaginative visual framework that includes shaped formats and other nonverbal cues.
