I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

The poem is not merely about the African-American experience -- to suggest
that is to deny the experience of all others who have been politically,
socially, or personally oppressed, or whose lives have gone unfulfilled.
The theme is universal.

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

I really think this poem is beautiful. It describes the African American
experience so aptly, and with so much emotion and feeling. I just love the
poem.

I know why the caged bird sings

I think this poem is a beautiful poem because it has a soft tone to it. I
also think its a great poem because
Maya Angelou put much feeling into it. I think Maya Angelou is By far the
best poet in history.
