    Andrea Gluck's last comments on poems and poets

    • POEM: Still I Rise by Maya Angelou (1/6/2010 11:25:00 AM)

      William,
      Consider that you might have missed something in your reading of this poem. Sometimes the intellect has to be put aside and engage other faculties of the self to sense something deeper. I don't know much about poetry, so I can't comment on structure etc. Also, I'm a woman but I'm not connecting with any feminist message. To me it's a deeply personal, impassioned response to one's pain and imposed limitations. I find it soulful and stirring, and her imagery quite powerful. Let the words and empathy for another's experience penetrate you without focusing on what good poetry is supposed to be, and perhaps you'll see why her words resonate for so many. As a last thought, to call it 'Bland and Distasteful' seems to me a strange and disconnected exaggeration by any measure.
