Here is a book as joyous and painful, as mysterious and memorable, as childhood itself. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings captures the longing of lonely children, the brute insult of bigotry, and the wonder of words that can make the world right. Maya Angelou’s debut memoir is a modern American classic beloved worldwide. 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 that love for herself, 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 will touch hearts and change minds for as long as people read. “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings liberates the reader into life simply because Maya Angelou confronts her own life with such a moving wonder, such a luminous dignity.”—James Baldwin From the Paperback edition.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1.0, Ruhr-Universitat Bochum (Englisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Women and Autobiography, 9 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Es findet ein Vergleich der Autobiographien von Angelous und Woolf statt. Mein Prof. schrieb mir auf die Arbeit folgenden Komentar: "Eine wirklich gelungene (unterstrichen) close reading-Analys der beiden Texte - mit sehr viel Einfuhlungsvermogen und unter Auswertung der einschlagigen Sekundarliteratur verfasst. Well done ", Abstract: Die vorliegende Hausarbeit beschaftigt sich mit der Rolle der Mutter in den Autobiografien "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" von Maya Angelou und Virginia Woolfs "A Sketch of the Past." Auf den ersten Blick erscheint ein Vergleich der Mutter dieser Autorinnen bzw. deren Darstellung weit hergeholt, ein zweiter Blick zeigt jedoch viele Gemeinsamkeiten in den Lebenslaufen der Autorinnen. Woolf wurde am 25. Januar 1882 im viktorianischen London geboren und wuchs in einem upper-middle-class" Haushalt auf. Sie lebte zusammen mit ihren Eltern und sieben Geschwistern. Die Mutter, Julia Stephens, verstarb als Virginia Woolf 13 Jahre alt war. Maya Angelou, geboren am 4. April 1928 in St. Louis, Missouri, hingegen verbrachte den Grossteil ihrer Kindheit zusammen mit ihrem Bruder Bailey in Stamps, Arkansas, bei der Grossmutter vaterlicherseits. Bei der Mutter, Vivian Baxter, lebte sie nur bis zu ihrem dritten Lebensjahr und dann wieder eine kurze Zeit, als sie acht Jahre alt war. Erst mit 13 kehrt Maya Angelou zu Vivian Baxter zuruck, um bei ihr zu leben. Beide Autorinnen berichten von der auffallenden Schonheit ihrer Mutter, haben selbst Probleme den eigenen Korper anzunehmen und beide finden grossen Halt durch ihre Geschwister, Woolf in Person ihrer Schwester Vanessa, Angelou bei ihrem Bruder Bailey. Ausserdem wurden beide als Kinder Opfer von sexuellem Missbrauch, innerhalb der Familie. Daher ist ein Vergleich"
