Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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
