Write Review

Rated 0

Biography: general, Prose: non-fiction

The re-issue of Just Give me a Cool Drink of Water 'fore I Diiie by Maya Angelou - one of the most celebrated writers and poets of the world.

From this best-selling author comes a marvellous collection of poetry. Poems of love and regret, of racial strife and confrontation, songs of the people and songs of the heart - all are charged with Maya Angelou's zest for life and her rage at injustice. Lyrical, tender poems of longing, wry glances at betrayal and isolation combine with a fierce insight into 'hate and hateful wrath' in an unforgettable picture of the hopes and concerns of one of America's finest contemporary Black writers.
