The poem I have chosen to write a detailed description and interpretation of is Maya Angelous Still I Rise In analysing the chosen poem I will be considering the ways in which my own knowledge experience and cultural identity might have an influence in the way I have read and interpreted the poem This poem is very strong and powerful as a reader I can sense this in the title of the poem still I rise If the reader does not know the origin of the author I guess that it will be hard to tell what the poem is actually about and whom it is targeted to We find the answer to whom the poem is written about in the last stanza where it mentions slaves ancestors from this I could tell that it is a poem about the author herself who is a black African American women and the painful past of black people I would say that the poem reflects the rising of the status of black people in America as well as other countries In the first verse the rhythmic pattern is of a regular 9 7 9 syllable pattern until the last line where the pattern of the syllables change to 6 Still 000like Shdust ltIll Oerise When this line is spoken there is a sense of a 1 2 1 2 1 2 pattern that is pronounced its somewhat of a skippy jumpy pattern which I would say is a rising duple pattern the stress is mainly on the second word as underlined This line in the stanza is an abrupt change in the whole stanza due to that fact that this line is to be the one that stands out it is the authors actions of what happens when people put her down she rises from it all This single line that stands out is repeated in the other verses too especially in the last
