This books is the first of five books written about Maya Angelou (born Marguerite Johnson) chronicling her own life. She-and her brother Bailey-were sent to the Jim Crow South to live with their grandmother at a very young age. In this book, we follow her from childhood in Stamps, Arkansas to adulthood in WWII San Francisco. I don't know why I haven't read this book sooner. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" is an American classic which has lost none of its power in the 30 years since it first appeared. Angelou's prose is direct and personal, and marked with passages of wit and beauty.

Maya Angelou's unforgettable autobiography, nominated for the National Book Award in 1969, recounts her struggle as a young black woman to overcome obstacles and realize her dreams. A meditation on themes of empowerment and self-actualization, it has emerged as a modern classic. This new collection of concise critical excerpts features an introduction from master critic Harold Bloom, an annotated biography of Angelou's myriad works, and an index.

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.
