More About the Author

Dr Maya Angelou was one of the world's most important writers and activists. Born 4 April 1928, she lived and chronicled an extraordinary life: rising from poverty, violence and racism, she became a renowned author, poet, playwright, civil rights' activist - working with Malcolm X and Martin Luther King - and memoirist. She wrote and performed a poem, 'On the Pulse of Morning', for President Clinton on his inauguration; she was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama and was honoured by more than seventy universities throughout the world.

She first thrilled the world with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969). This was followed by six volumes of autobiography, the seventh and final volume, Mom & Me & Mom, published in 2013. She wrote three collections of essays; many volumes of poetry, including His Day is Done, a tribute to Nelson Mandela; and two cookbooks. She had a lifetime appointment as Reynolds Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest University of North Carolina. Dr Angelou died on 28 May 2014.

'A brilliant writer, a fierce friend and a truly phenomenal woman' President Barack Obama

'The poems and stories she wrote . . . were gifts of wisdom and wit, courage and grace' President Bill Clinton

'She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace . . . She will always be the rainbow in my clouds' Oprah Winfrey

'She was important in so many ways. She launched African American women writing in the United States. She was generous to a fault. She had nineteen talents - used ten. And was a real original. There's no duplicate. There is no duplicate' Toni Morrison

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a book for women! 1 Feb. 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
How many of these reviews are by men? Let me tell you something; this is a book every man should read and try to realise something in the doing so. It contains perhaps some of the most uplifting poetry I have read in many years. Read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Stirring 19 Nov. 1997
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Maya simply extols the WOMAN. She is effortlessly eloquent and each word is perfectly selected to fit. I take pride in being a woman more so since Maya can express my feelings that I could never put into words. Her poetry deserves as many stars as there are in the black night sky.

Wheather your black or not she says exactly what you should think about yourself. And it makes you think of all your good points and makes you belive that you don't have to be a super model in order for you to be liked or respected by others. She has a power with words that I could only think about that I could never put in words.
