    • POEM: Still I Rise by Maya Angelou (2/27/2012 7:17:00 PM)

      The poem Still I Rise is a strong and powerful poem that talks about themes like discrimination, pride and confidence. The technique of refrain and the repetition of the phrase Still I Rise was a really effective way to convey the particular message and theme that Maya Angelou wanted, which was to show the characters pride and determination to continue on through negative events. Simple figurative language, more specifically similes are used such as the line and still like air I rise. These similes helped to create an effective image in my mind while I was reading the poem. I felt that this poem was defiantly written by a women and was lead to believe this by words such as sexiness. The use of the word sassy gave me the impression that the women in the poem had a lot of confidence in herself and it also came across as a little bit arrogant. I enjoyed reading this poem and was able to connect and to an extend understand what the woman was going through and the amount of strength that it takes to continue to rise above negative criticism.
