And Still I Rise

Maya Angelou s unforgettable collection of poetry lends its name to the documentary film about her life, And Still I Rise, as seen on PBS s American Masters. Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I m not cute or built to suit a fashion model s size But when I start to tell them, They think I m telling lies. I say, It s in the reach of my arms, The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I m a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That s me. Thus begins Phenomenal Woman, just one of the beloved poems collected here in Maya Angelou s third book of verse. These poems are powerful, distinctive, and fresh and, as always, full of the lifting rhythms of love and remembering. And Still I Rise is written from the heart, a celebration of life as only Maya Angelou has discovered it. It is true poetry she is writing, M.F.K. Fisher has observed, not just rhythm, the beat, rhymes. I find it very moving and at times beautiful. It has an innate purity about it, unquenchable dignity. . . . It is astounding, flabbergasting, to recognize it, in all the words I read every day and night . . . it gives me heart, to hear so clearly the caged bird singing and to understand her notes. "
