Maya Angelou

"Maya Angelou (/ˈændʒəloʊ/ ( listen); born Marguerite Annie Johnson; April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014) was an American poet, singer, memoirist, and civil rights activist. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, several books of poetry, and was credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning over 50 years. She received dozens of awards and more than 50 honorary degrees. Angelou is best known for her series of seven autobiographies, which focus on her childhood and early adult experiences. The first, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969), tells of her life up to the age of 17 and brought her international recognition and acclaim.

Maya Angelou: The Complete Poetry also features her final long-form poems, including &;A Brave and Startling Truth,&; &;Amazing Peace,&; &;His Day Is Done,&; and the honest and endearing Mother:

&;I feared if I let you go
You would leave me eternally.
You smiled at my fears, saying
I could not stay in your lap forever&;

This collection also includes the never-before-published poem &;Amazement Awaits,&; commissioned for the 2008 Olympic Games:

&;We are here at the portal of the world we had wished for
At the lintel of the world we most need.
We are here roaring and singing.
We prove that we can not only make peace, we can bring it with us.&;

Timeless and prescient, this definitive compendium will warm the hearts of Maya Angelou&;s most ardent admirers as it introduces new readers to the legendary poet, activist, and teacher&;a phenomenal woman for the ages.
