Book

  • Symbolic geography and psychic landscapes : a conversation with Maya Angelou / Joanne M. Braxton
  • Initiation and discovery / Dolly McPherson
  • Learning to live : when the bird breaks from the cage / Opal Moore
  • Reembodying the self : representations of rape in I know why the caged bird sings / Mary Vermillion
  • Racial protest, identity, words, and form / Pierre A. Walker
  • Paths to escape / Susan Gilbert
  • Death as metaphor of self / Liliane K. Arensberg
  • Singing the Black mother : Mary Angelou and autographical continuity / Mary Jane Lupton
  • Maya Angelou : an interview / Claudia Tate.
Perhaps more than any other text, Maya Angelou's "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" helped to establish the audience and the "mainstream" status of the renaissance in black women's writing and thus to pave the way for the future success of Alice Walker, Terry McMillan, Sherley Anne Williams and perhaps even Toni Morrison. This volume is intended for use in the area where Angelou's first autobiography shows a continuing and flourishing readership, especially American autobiography, African-American literature, Women's Studies/Gender Studies and Cross-Cultural Studies. Along with Braxton's introduction and the Claudia Tate interview, the selected essays provide a range of critical approaches to the text.

Tenderly, joyously, sometimes in sadness, sometimes in pain, Maya Angelou writes from the heart and celebrates life as only she has discovered it. In this moving volume of poetry, we hear the multi-faceted voice of one of the most powerful and vibrant writers of our time. "The wisdom, rue and humor of her storytelling are borne on a lilting rhythm completely her own, the product of a born writer's senses nourished on black church singing and preaching, soft mother talk and salty street talk, and on literature: James Weldon Johnson, Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, Shakespeare and Gorki." -- "The New York Times Book Review." "Black, bitter and beautiful, she speaks of our survival." -- James Baldwin.

For a world of devoted readers, a much-awaited new volume of absorbing stories and inspirational wisdom from one of our best-loved writers. Dedicated to the daughter she never had but sees all around her, "Letter to My Daughter" reveals Maya Angelou's path to living well and living a life with meaning. Told in her own inimitable style, this book transcends genres and categories: guidebook, memoir, poetry, and pure delight. Here in short spellbinding essays are glimpses of the tumultuous life that led Angelou to an exalted place in American letters and taught her lessons in compassion and fortitude: how she was brought up by her indomitable grandmother in segregated Arkansas, taken in at thirteen by her more worldly and less religious mother, and grew to be an awkward, six-foot-tall teenager whose first experience of loveless sex paradoxically left her with her greatest gift, a son. Whether she is recalling such lost friends as Coretta Scott King and Ossie Davis, extolling honesty, decrying vulgarity, explaining why becoming a Christian is a "lifelong endeavor, " or simply singing the praises of a meal of red rice-Maya Angelou writes from the heart to millions of women she considers her extended family. Like the rest of her remarkable work, "Letter to My Daughter" entertains and teaches; it is a book to cherish, savor, re-read, and share. "I gave birth to one child, a son, but I have thousands of daughters. You are Black and White, Jewish and Muslim, Asian, Spanish speaking, Native Americans and Aleut. You are fat and thin and pretty and plain, gay and straight, educated and unlettered, and I am speaking to you all. Here is my offering to you." -from "Letter to My Daughter".
