    • POEM: Still I Rise by Maya Angelou (2/27/2012 11:14:00 AM)

      This poem is a true inspiration. This poem is about persevering and trying to beat something that is almost unbeatable. The author never gives up, she makes this very clear when she writes still I rise. This phrase works as a sort of refrain, or chorus. After all the negatives and things that try to knock her down, she responds with a strong Still I Rise. I thought it was very interesting how the author included a form of taunting and satire, like when she writes Does my sexiness upset you? . This is satirical in a sense because she is a slave, and no one would ever expect her to be sexy, but she says this to taunt her leader.
