Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is the type of novel that is open to interpretation and students will gain a better understanding from reading all of the discussion. Doctorow is quoted in several chapters. Students looking for criticism and analysis of literary works will find it easy to use this title rather than searching endlessly for the journals in which these articles may have originally appeared. A valuable resource for literature collections."

By Tina Hayes VINE VOICE on April 21, 2011
Format: Hardcover
I truly enjoyed Maya Angelou's "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings". One of the most gifted poets of our time, Ms Angelou tells the story of her life, beginning with the time she was three and put on a train to go live with their grandmother in Arkansas and ending when she has a child of her own at sixteen.

Ms Angelou's wit and honesty, along with her ability to describe the people and events that shaped who she is, made it hard for me to put this book down. Not only did I learn about her life, but her words made me stop and take a look at who I am as well.

I highly recommend this book, and urge people who read it to also pick up a volume of her poetry.

I thought this book was an interesting read, however it was difficult to finish at times. What made me continue to finish the book was the beautiful way Maya Angelou writes. I found her story to be a bit dry and slow at times. However, her preserverance to become successful in life dispite her many obstacles kept me interested in this book. If I had not known how successful Maya Angelou's life turned out, I might not have finished the book. I was interested in knowing her journey. I recommend this book for teenage girls who are struggling with self-esteem issues and teen pregnancy because Maya Angelou's story can be used as a great encouragement to hang in there despite adversity.
