I Shall Not be Moved Paperback


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
