In this first of five volumes of autobiography, poet Maya Angelou recounts a youth filled with disappointment, frustration, tragedy, and finally hard-won independence. Sent at a young age to live with her grandmother in Arkansas, Angelou learned a great deal from this exceptional woman and the tightly knit black community there. These very lessons carried her throughout the hardships she endured later in life, including a tragic occurrence while visiting her mother in St. Louis and her formative years spent in California--where an unwanted pregnancy changed her life forever. Marvelously told, with Angelou's "gift for language and observation," this "remarkable autobiography by an equally remarkable black woman from Arkansas captures, indelibly, a world of which most Americans are shamefully ignorant."


"I know that not since the days of my childhood, when people in books were more real than people one saw every day, have I found myself so moved."
-James Baldwin

"Gather Together in My Name is part of a select body of literature that includes The Autobiography of Malcolm X, Claude Brown's Manchild in the Promised Land and Ernest J. Gaines' The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. Maya Angelou regards the world and herself with intelligence and wit; she records the events of her life with style and grace."
-William McPherson, The Washington Post Book World

"This is a superb account by a great women who has embraced a difficult destiny with rare intelligence and infectious joie de vivre."
-The Boston Globe

12 von 12 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Michele Lewis am 8. Juni 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
May I tell you why I choose to have my ninth grade students read it? I have noticed a lot of reviews by young people, which I applaud, but an adult perspective might be helpful.
I don't particularly feel the need to defend its merits. (I am not articulate enough to do justice to that task.) As with any book, some will love it and some won't. Guaranteed, it will make you uncomfortable at times, because one chapter describes the rape of a young person--which is painful for any compassionate human being to hear. Plus, there are other sexual issues, largely stemming from the earlier assault, but also because she is a teenager in the last phase of the book. Such questions about love and sex are characteristic of the teenage years. Many young people, as well as adults, are confused about such topics. While these are generally the most controversial segments from the book, the fundamental lesson of the book goes far beyond the survival of one victim. I won't supply you with the answers as to what one should take away from the text. It is a personal experience for each of us.
We can all learn from Maya's honest account of her childhood journey. We can all try on her experiences and live vicariously through her for a while, and see how it changes our own perspective on what it means to be a human being.
I'll be the first to admit, this book is a challenge for all my students in one way or another. Some because they are white and live in the northern US. Some because they are male and it's difficult to view life through a woman's eyes. Some because of the adult vocabulary and extensive use of figurative language. Some of these experiences are so remote from their own, while others are very close to home.

Format: Taschenbuch
I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, by Maya Angelou, was one of the most touching books that I have ever read in my fourteen years of life. While reading To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, in my eighth grade English class, we were assigned to read an independent reading book on a similar topic.
"For the first semester, I was one of three black students in the school, and in that rarefied atmosphere I came to love my people more. Mornings as the streetcar traversed my ghetto I experienced a mixture of dread and trauma. I knew that all too soon we would be out of my familiar setting, and Blacks who were on the streetcar when I got on would all be gone and I alone would face forty blocks of neat streets, smooth lawns, white houses, and rich children." As a white female reader, I found Maya Angelou's views very interesting and different from what I had expected. Her point of view helped me to understand her and her feelings even more deeply than I already did. It also helped me to understand the contrast between the races at the time.
"I guess it ain't your fault if Uncle Atticus is a n----r-lover besides, but I'm here to tell you it certainly does mortify the rest of the family-" says one of the white main character's cousins in To Kill A Mockingbird.
Both books portray racism in America in the earlier part of the twentieth century and the great similarities and differences between the two races. One of the similarities in I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings and To Kill A Mockingbird was religion. Religion was a very large factor in both a white and black person's life in the two books. However, while religion was important to the different races, it was for very different reasons.

5 von 5 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Oliver Völckers TOP 500 REZENSENT am 12. Mai 2013
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Dieser erste Band von Maya Angelous Autobiografie beschreibt ihre Kindheit und Jugend bis zur Geburt ihres Sohnes. Ein Leben in Kalifornien während des Zweiten Weltkriegs, inmitten von Armut, Gewalt und Rassismus. Doch die spätere Dr. Angelou gibt nicht auf. Es gelingt ihr, die erste schwarze Straßenbahnschaffnerin zu werden. Die Energie und Lebensweisheit ihrer Mutter hilft ihr, sich durchzusetzen.
Als dieses Buch 1969 erschien, war es eine Sensation, ein bahnbrechendes Zeugnis direkt aus der afroamerikanischen Community heraus. Auch heute noch ist diese Biografie lesenswert. Die Lektüre macht deutlich, wieviel die Bürgerrechtsbewegung seit damals geschafft hat, aber auch, wieviel es noch zu tun gibt. Danke an die Autorin, die Menschen eine Stimme gibt, die normalerweise selten zu hören sind.

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ein Kunde am 30. November 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
I've never read Maya Angelou before and I was really impressed by her style. I've enjoyed this book because although it describes in a very detailed way the very sad aspects of racism; it also describes certain situations with a good sense of humour. It also portrays the values and richness of the African American Culture. The book is full of different "feelings" which make you laugh, cry and let you be part of the different stages in which Maya goes through. I like the way she clarifies different situations in which the African American way of dealing with things is described, because this let you see the situation from their point of view and at the same time introduces you to their culture. I enjoy the detailed narration of the sad and the happy moments of her life. It is also very easy to perceive her relationship with the different people in her life. This book is one of those which you don't want to finish, so I'm looking forward to reading the following titles of her autobiography because I really want to know more about the way her life has developed and to be treated again by her powerful narrative style. What a wonderful woman she must be!
