Summary
A biographical chapter is enriched by an exclusive interview granted by Angelou, and a chapter on genre discusses Angelou's work in the context of the tradition of American and African American autobiography. A chapter is devoted to each of the five volumes of her serial autobiography - I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1970), Gather Together in My Name (1974), Singin and Swingin and Gettin' Merry Like Christmas (1976). The Heart of a Woman (1981), and All God's Children Need Traveling Shoes (1986). The discussion of each volume features sections on narrative point of view, plot development, character development, the-matic issues, style and literary devices, and an alternate critical approach from which to read the work. A complete bibliography of Angelou's work, plus a list of reviews of each work and selected secondary critical and biographical sources, complete the work. This companion is ideal for students, teachers, and others interested in Maya Angelou, the African American experience, and the craft of autobiography
