More About Maya Angelou
Maya Angelou was raised in Stamps, Arkansas. In addition to her bestselling autobiographies, including I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and The Heart of a Woman, she wrote numerous volumes of poetry, among them Phenomenal Woman, And Still I Rise, On the Pulse of Morning, and Mother. Maya Angelou died in 2014. Paul Gauguin (1848-1903), the French Post-impressionist painter, abandoned his family and his career as a stockbroker to paint in Tahiti and other exotic locations. According to some art scholars, modern art began with Paul Gauguin. Today his work is in the permanent collections of museums all over the world.
Maya Angelou lived in Winston-Salem, in the state of North Carolina. Maya Angelou was born in 1928 and died in 2014.

And Still I Rise Apr 5, 2008
Maya Angelou's reading of poetry is moving to the point ot tears and laughter. I highly recommend it.
On time and as expected Feb 11, 2008
This audiobook arrived in about a week and was in the condition advertised. Overall, I was satisfied with the transaction and would purchase from this seller again.
And Still I Rise is next to Kipling's 'IF 'and "Invictus' Oct 29, 2004
...Invictus is by William E. Henley......I do not like much poetry.....but 'Still I Rise', is one of the most moving and powerful pieces of literature of our day. You can feel the rumblings of motivation rising within you as you read it---it summons the power of our ancestors as you read it... YOU FEEL this poem with all your heart--or I fear you have no heart and you remember that feeling for years after you have read it! It is a magnificent poem that the author not only wrote, but earned through her own life. This book would make excellent Christmas gifts of inspiration.
"Still I Rise" and Rising Nov 5, 2002
This book is filled with wonderful, powerful poetry that really awakened me to the troubles of African Americans in that time of history. Diego Rivera's paintings in the book are staggering and breathtaking. This is a must-see for any ameteur or lover of poetry.
The Best So Far Oct 2, 2001
The title says it all. I love this poem. It's Maya's best so far. And I love the combination of the poetry and artwork. I hope she chooses to do this more often. A superb book created by a superb woman! *****
