    • POEM: Caged Bird by Maya Angelou (2/27/2012 7:46:00 PM)

      Maya Angelou’s “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” carried a certain air of resonance, which despite it’s simple diction, struck me as deep and meaningful, and ambiguous in many ways. This poem is generally specified to pertain to the struggles African-American people have endured, however such specificity is exclusive to a certain people while this poem is more likely to be generally referring to suppressed freedom or liberty. Angelou creates a deep contrast between the freedoms of the bird the restrained bird is watching, juxtaposing the lines “And he claimed the sky his own” and “But a caged bird stands on a grave of dreams”. Due to the allegorical ambiguity of this particular poem, it is hard to determine its exact meaning, however, it can be said that the poem voices the dismay of the suppressed, and the ignorance of the free.
