The incomparable Maya Angelou is this week’s Poet of the Week (in honor of National Poetry Month). She’s been a staff pick before, and she absolutely deserves to be again. An American author, activist, poet, dancer, actress, and singer, she published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, and several books of poetry, and was credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning over 50 years. She was a truly impressive woman, and her writing is beautiful.
