The Complete Collected Poems of Maya Angelou Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Maya Angelou was raised in Stamps, Arkansas. In addition to her bestselling autobiographies, including I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and The Heart of a Woman, she wrote numerous volumes of poetry, among them Phenomenal Woman, And Still I Rise, On the Pulse of Morning, and Mother. Maya Angelou died in 2014.

Review:

"The poems are generous in their directness, in the humor Angelou finds alongside her outrage and pain, in their robust embrace of life. . . . The musical currents of blues and jazz, and the rhythm of rap songs, and the language of the Bible mingle in her poems" Sandra Cookson, World Literature Today

Synopsis:

Brought together for the first time, here are all of Maya Angelou's published poems--including "On the Pulse of Morning", her inaugural poem--in a handsome collectible hardcover edition. The complete texts of Angelou's previous volumes of poetry have been reset and redesigned for this edition.
