I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.401

Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local ?powhitetrash.? At eight years old and back at her mother?s side in St. Louis, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age?and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. Years later, in San Francisco, Maya learns about love for herself and the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors (?I met and fell in love with William Shakespeare?) will allow her to be free instead of imprisoned.

Poetic and powerful, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is a modern American classic that will touch hearts and change minds for as long as people read.

an innocent girl remained ingenuous

this is a story of a negro girl who learns and accepts the vicissitudes of human life through different risky pleasurable paths along with her responsible,sensible brother accompanied by their grumpy,strait-laced grandmother more often than not.The narration is so intriguing that you can't leave it incomplete halfway or anywhere during the reading.The story bears resemblance to no other than the writer,Maya Angelou,herself and spans up to the protagonist's giving birth to a child at an untimely age of being pregnant and the writer wonderfully leaves it upon us to delineate the story with d...

the Curse of racism

The author has had to deal with the curse of being a black from a very early age. Growing up in Stamps, her innocent mind regards the Whites as an almost different species. Very often she tries to fathom the unjustifiable contempt the Whites feel for the colored people; yet, just like every other Black, she is forced to accept her predicament, with her brother and grandmother by her side. Painting a stark picture of what it meant to be a Black back in her childhood days, Maya Angelou describes how she was relocated to her mother's place, only to deal with a blow that shatters her to the ext...

Very often she tries to fathom the unjustifiable contempt the Whites feel for the colored people; yet, just like every other Black, she is forced to accept her predicament, with her brother and grandmother by her side. Painting a stark picture of what it meant to be a Black back in her childhood days, Maya Angelou describes how she was relocated to her mother's place, only to deal with a blow that shatters her to the extent that she refuses to talk to any person. Finally, she finds solace in poems. The book ends with a beautiful "If you're for the right thing, then you do it without thinking."
