Introduction to literature

  1. 1. Literature Poem : I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings Poet : Maya Angelou Thermutis P Renyaan 150401090024 Esti Wahyuni 150401090083
  2. 2. I know why the caged bird sings A free bird leaps on the back Of the wind and floats downstream Till the current ends and dips his wing In the orange suns rays And dares to claim the sky. But a BIRD that stalks down his narrow cage Can seldom see through his bars of rage His wings are clipped and his feet are tied So he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trill Of things unknown but longed for still And his tune is heard on the distant hill for The caged bird sings of freedom. The free bird thinks of another breeze And the trade winds soft through The sighing trees And the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright Lawn and he names the sky his own. But a caged BIRD stands on the grave of dreams His shadow shouts on a nightmare scream His wings are clipped and his feet are tied So he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with A fearful trill of things unknown But longed for still and his Tune is heard on the distant hill For the caged bird sings of freedom.
  3. 3. Figurative language
  4. 4. Personification – Sighing trees – Shadow shouts
  5. 5. Metaphor – The grave of dream – Sing of freedom – She is comparing a bird trapped in a cage to slavery and the pain of the freedom – The song bird sings represents the plea of freedom – The poem relates to the feeling of bird, as his parents were once slaves
  6. 6. Imagery – Expressing his feelings here, the poem is lyrical – The third stanza amhasizes how desperate the bird truly is – the bird sings a prayer not of enjoy or glee, but of prayer to heaven
  7. 7. Repitition – But – Sentense repititon ( so he open his throat to sing)
  8. 8. Theme and Topic
  9. 9. Theme : They want to be free of the incompetence that exists in America.
  10. 10. Topic : Freedom The caged bird can be interpreted as the black race being held back from freedomby their skin color. They are repressed African Americans who are both literally and figuratively caged an unable to spread their wings and meet their full potential. They dream of freedom. The repetition of the word “ freedom” is also used to highlight the rights of every American citizen.
