    • POEM: Caged Bird by Maya Angelou (9/13/2010 11:14:00 PM)

      From this poem i learn that the author feels like a part of her is left behind a cage and hidden, and the other half of her is free and shows. She wants to show her other hal but her wing are 'clipped' and her 'feet are tied'. This poem shows me that she wants all of what is inside of her but she cant seem to show all of herself because she feels like part of her is stuck behind a cage. One question i asked ofthe text was why exactly does the caged bid sing? The answer i found to that question was singing is the only way the caged bird can be heard. Another question i aske of the text is how is this poem autobiagrphical? Th poem is autobiagraphical because the author is talking about how she truely feels inside.
