    • POEM: Still I Rise by Maya Angelou (2/27/2012 2:50:00 PM)

      Maya Angelou’s “Still I Rise” is a very compelling poem. The way I interpret the poem is her battle with racism, sexism, lies and low standards of living yet she is able to rise above it all. She is able to “rise” above and just be herself. She embraces who she is and is not ashamed of herself, she is proud of herself. The register at the poem, “Still I Rise” enforces her idea of rising above and being a bigger person. The end stopping in the poem keeps her points concise, clear and keeps the reader’s attention. The language is also very simple and is accessible to anyone who reads it. Overall this poem is very affective of getting her point across of “rising” above all the hatred in life and just to live life as you are and be proud of who you are.
