I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 458

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings is Maya Angelou’s debut memoir, which was first published in 1969. It is a modern American classic which provides an incisive look into the early years of African-American writer and poet.

Summary of the Book

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is a coming-of-age story which very beautifully shows how the strength of a character and a love of literature can help overcome trauma and racism. Maya and her brother, Bailey were sent by their mother to live with their grandmother in a small Southern town. They bare the pain of abandonment and prejudice of the local white folks. When she was just an 8-year-old girl, she was attacked by a man many times her age in St. Louis. She does not have a choice but to live with its consequences for a lifetime. After several years, in San Francisco, Maya finally realizes that love for herself, the kindness of others, and her own strong spirit are the only things which will allow her to be free instead of imprisoned. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is a poetic and powerful read and will touch the heart of the readers.
