    1. Maya Angelou is an inspirational figure, admired the world over for her sensitivity, passion, and advocacy of black rights she was a vigorous activist, especially with regard to women The world lost a remarkable influential figure when she died So what is her poetry actually like The word inspirational is bandied around today to include all sort of cant and twaddle I must admit to being apprehensive at the start Although by the time this collection had been published, Maya Angelou had received o [...]


    2. I assumed I would enjoy this one and I assumed correctly.This is my first foray into Angelou s poetry other than listening to random snippets but I have read the first of her autobiographies I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings I adored the rythm of her poems, they slipped so naturally from the tongue and her choice of words was fascinating, it really had me chewing on each on certain words and phrases, rolling them around in my head There were lots of themes of love, lust, sex, the body, racism and [...]


    3. Wishing so badly I was in DC today to hear these poems read at the Women s March Does my haughtiness offend you Don t you take it awful hard Cause I laugh like I ve got gold minesDiggin in my own backyard.You may shoot me with your words,You may cut me with your eyes,You may kill me with your hatefulness,But still, like air, I ll rise.


    4. And Still I RiseYou may write me down in historyWith your bitter, twisted lies,You may tread me in the very dirtBut still, like dust, I ll rise.Does my sassiness upset you Why are you beset with gloom Cause I walk like I ve got oil wellsPumping in my living room.Just like moons and like suns,With the certainty of tides,Just like hopes springing high,Still I ll rise.Did you want to see me broken Bowed head and lowered eyes Shoulders falling down like teardrops.Weakened by my soulful cries.Does my [...]


    5. Wow, just wow I didn t actually read the poem, I listened to an actress reading it during a show and fell in love with it it is power, it is confidence, it is hope, this could easily be a chant in a revolt or in a march loved it


    6. Short poems about being black and a woman My favorites were Woman WorkOne More RoundAin t that Bad Life doesn t Frighten MeCall Letters Mrs V.B.Caged Bird Weekend GloryAnd of course Still I Rise.Did you want to see me broken Bowed head and lowered eyes Shoulders falling down like teardrops,Weakened by my soulful cries Does my haughtiness offend you Don t you take it awful hard Cause I laugh like I got gold minesDiggin in my own back yard You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your [...]

I love this book and author, due to the fact I find her very inspirational.In this book holds the key to my strengthn not Phenomenal Woman, which I find an amazing poem, and one of my favourites And Still I rise, is an amazing example, of how life goes on I am held, back, I struggle and still I continue, and this should be the motto for each and every woman out there, AND STILL I RISE


    8. This was the first full book of poetry I read I was in the fifth grade, and wrote a book report on it When I decided to read it again, the language came back to me before I had even opened the book Perhaps it was the connection with my own past but the poems made me cry Even ones that were not sad, or even joyful The language itself was enough I have my favorites Of course there is Phenomenal Woman and Still I Rise, but I also love Country Lover and Refusal Some of the poems I would like to revi [...]

    13. You may shoot me with your words,You may cut me with your eyes,You may kill me with your hatefulness,But still, like air, I ll rise.


    14. first time I have read anything by Maya Angelou and it won t be the last I really enjoyed the experience some poems left me shaking some king of love they say in particular others made me so excited and set my soul on fire and just a few I didn t really get over all my favourite part in the 3 rd one the poems I liked most were in no order some kind of love they say still I rise phenomenal woman on aging country lover one mor round it gave me the chills


    15. This is such a vibrant collection, so full of the joy and liveliness that is characteristic of Maya Angelou s writing And Still I Rise is my favourite poem bold, sensuous, wry, and powerful, it conveys the extraordinary personality behind this delightful little book The poems are all striking individually, but fit together to create a beautiful tapestry of what it means to be alive.


    16. What a wonderful collection of poems I just love this woman, such an inspiration Anything she wrote manages to give me a good vibe and gives me hope.


    17. I enjoyed this short book of poems by Maya Angelou I don t read much poetry but I could feel the beauty in these words.


    18. I didn t read this right to me, poetry should be read over and slowly, to digest it and savor it I read this straight through in two sittings, but even so, there were some inspiring poems that stuck with me.


    19. Maya Angelou s And Still I Rise is an impactful, call to action poem that discusses a woman speaking up for herself, other living blacks, and even black ancestors The speaker in the poem addresses those you who have mistreated and oppressed her, claiming, And still I rise This poem is a reminder for students that there will always be those who do not respect you, and throw hurtful words your way, but you can rise to the occasion and be triumphant Maya Angelou was a very significant woman who sto [...]


    20. A lovely collection of some of Maya Angelou s poems, including the titular Still I Rise, which is one of my favourites One to revisit time and time again, I expect.



    21. You may write me down in historyWith your bitter, twisted lies,You may trod me down in the very dirt But still, like dust, I ll rise.


    22. Glorious The whole collection was wonderful but the poem And Still I Rise is a real stand out moment of perfect beauty.


    23. I received this book as a beautiful gift from my son his partner who share my love of Maya Angelou s writing I will treasure it and immerse myself over over in her lyrical, rich and powerful words of both grace courage.



    24. One of my favorites I remember reading it with my best friend in one of our visits to Abdeen Palace museums We were sitting in the museums garden after an exam and I recited this poem We talked about Nirvana moments and about our writings.


    25. It has been a while since I read poetry and had to keep reminding myself to slow down to take in the depth For me all of the poems were good but Still I Rise and Thank You, Lord stood out with especially uplifting messages.
