The classic collection of poetry from the author of I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS.


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



Maya Angelou's poetry - lyrical and dramatic, exuberant and playful - speaks of love, longing, partings; of Saturday night partying, and the smells and sounds of Southern cities; of freedom and shattered dreams.


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



'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 is no duplicate'
