En la primera y más conocida de sus novelas autobiográficas, Maya Angelou nos habla de su dura infancia y de los trances por los que tuvo que pasar hasta convertirse en una mujer independiente. Criada en un pequeño pueblo de Arkansas por su abuela, Angelou aprendió mucho de esta mujer excepcional y de una comunidad extraordinariamente cohesionada; unas lecciones de vida que la ayudarían a sobrellevar las dramáticas circunstancias a las que tuvo que enfrentarse posteriormente en San Luis y California. Este emocionante relato retrata también la vida de la mayor parte de la población negra del Sur de los Estados Unidos durante la primera mitad del siglo xx.

Angelou, una de las poetas más famosas de EE. UU., tenía un don extraordinario para narrar; su libro, que es a la vez alegre y triste, misterioso y memorable, como la niñez, nos habla de los anhelos y miedos infantiles, del amor y del odio, de cómo las palabras pueden hacer del mundo un lugar mejor.

Publicado por primera vez en 1969, Yo sé por qué canta el pájaro enjaulado es un clásico de la literatura universal que ha conquistado a un millón de lectores en todo el mundo.

I should have read this many years ago, but I'll try to just be glad that now I finally have. It is every bit as good--and often heartbreaking--as I expected it would be. It's not every memoir that makes me constantly aware that the author is also a poet, but this one certainly did, and it made me eager to read more of Maya Angelou's work. ( )

At some point when I was a child, I acquired a copy of this book, loving the title and knowing that it held some classic status. But I was far too young to fully understand the subject matter...I'm not even sure I would have had enough context to even have gotten enough out of this book had I read it as a teenager. What I found now, as an adult reading this reflection on a childhood fraught with hardship and horrors, surprised me. I figured Angelou's poetic flair would come through, but the extent of her twists and turns on prose thoroughly delighted me. Around halfway through the memoir, I was suddenly aware of the fact that, despite addressing some very difficult topics, Angelou is hilarious. She so candidly confronts the youthful ignorance of a precocious child, but it is tender, unflinching, and relatable, even for someone whose childhood was so entirely different.

I can't wait to read her following memoir, though I am saddened that it appears to never have made it to audio...my experience with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings was surely enhanced by listening to Angelou's own delivery. And I am glad I waited this long to read this book...and that I didn't wait any longer. It has made me reconsider my thought that I'd decline to participate in next year's Read Harder challenge with Book Riot (the 2018 challenge items should be due out any day now...), as I see how it has lit a fire under my butt to read several books sooner than later and led me to discover new favorites. Regardless, I'm eager to read about Angelou's life in Gather Together in My Name and continue along on her journey.

Such a compelling writer. My heart hurt a lot throughout this read. Although much of this book was difficult, she writes in an honest, matter-of-fact way that gets the reader past the more painful parts. Her prose is direct and swept me along with ease. Humbling.

I bought a beautiful hardcover edition. Somehow I knew I would want to return to this work, and I am glad to have it. ( )
