I Shall Not Be Moved Summary


I Shall Not Be Moved by Dr Maya Angelou

The incomparable Maya Angelou has given us many riches in both her poetry and her autobiographical writing. In this collection of verse she winds skeins of desire and longing; throws punches - some tough, some tender; flaunts and beguiles; and pokes fun: 'London is a very queer place. Mighty queer. A million miles from jungle, and the British lion roars in the stone of Trafalgar Square.'
At her exuberant best, and yet with a new bittersweet mellowness, she sings the pleasures and pains of ageing. History and heartbreak and love - these are Maya Angelou's themes so richly explored in cadences and rhythms of infinite inventiveness.
'Maya Angelou has unquenchable dignity' MFK Fisher

About Dr Maya Angelou


Dr Maya Angelou was one of the world's most important writers and activists. Born 4 April 1928, she lived and chronicled an extraordinary life: rising from poverty, violence and racism, she became a renowned author, poet, playwright, civil rights' activist - working with Malcolm X and Martin Luther King - and memoirist. She wrote and performed a poem, 'On the Pulse of Morning', for President Clinton on his inauguration; she was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama and was honoured by more than seventy universities throughout the world.

She first thrilled the world with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969). This was followed by six volumes of autobiography, the seventh and final volume, Mom & Me & Mom, published in 2013. She wrote three collections of essays; many volumes of poetry, including His Day is Done, a tribute to Nelson Mandela; and two cookbooks. She had a lifetime appointment as Reynolds Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest University of North Carolina. Dr Angelou died on 28 May 2014.
