    • POEM: Caged Bird by Maya Angelou (2/29/2012 10:25:00 AM)

      This poem, “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” is phenomenal poem in many ways. There are many metaphors that give it a very deep and meaningful look. A couple metaphors are caged bird, free bird, and breeze. Caged bird symbolizes the black race. Free bird symbolizes the white race, and breeze symbolizes hope/opportunity. You can tell that this can relate to the years where the black race didn’t have the same amount of rights as the white did. I love how the poet added these metaphors because it makes the reader think thoroughly and make the reader read it a couple times to really understand the poem. After reading this multiple times, I really felt that this poem connected with me. It’s because I believe that everyone should me treated the same way no matter what. Another interesting addition to this poem is the way it was written. There are 6 stanzas each with 7 lines except 2, which have 4. There are no rhyming schemes or meters. It is a free verse and stanzas rotate from free bird to caged bird. Overall, I think this was a fantastic poem.
