    • POEM: Caged Bird by Maya Angelou (2/27/2012 9:55:00 PM)

      Maya Angelou's I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings is a very powerful poem that conveys it's message through simple language. It compares two birds, and how one is trapped in a cage with it's wings clipped, while the other can run free. The poem can feel dark and sad at first glance, however it can symbolize hope. It shows that the caged bird still has the will to carry on with it's powerful determination. At first, i did not understand the relevance of the title. However, I now see that it is showing that even though the caged bird is trapped, it still sings because of it's hope and will. The piece holds many symbols in it such as oppression and the struggle of african americans. This poem made me feel sad and depressed at first, but after further analyzation I could see that the poem was showing hope, and had a happier side. The bird depicted longs to be free and to be like the bird that is not caged. It is a strong metaphor for the struggle of black people in society and how they became free just like te rest of society.
