Description


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.


From the Paperback edition.

About the Author


Maya Angelou, American poet, historian, educator, civil rights activist, and author of twelve best-selling books.

Praise For…


"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.
