I RISE COLLECTION
The I Rise collection is inspired by the Beautiful poet Maya Angelou. And Still I Rise consists of 32 poems, divided into three parts.
The first part, entitled "Touch Me, Life, Not Softly", has been called "joyful" and affirms the poet's strength as a woman and as a lover.
Part Two, "Traveling", focus on the hardships, such as drug addiction, child abuse, inner-city life, and conditions in the Old South, that the author and others have experienced.
Part Three, "And Still I Rise", which gets its name from the volume's title poem, reiterates the themes in Part One and emphasizes the strength.
Masterpiece, magnum opus (Latin, great work) or Chef-d'œuvre (French, master of work, plural Chefs-d'œuvre) in modern use is a creation that has been given much critical praise, especially one that is considered the greatest work of a person's career or to a work of outstanding creativity, skill, profundity, or workwomenship/ workmanship.
Historically, a "masterpiece"' was a work of a very high standard produced to obtain membership of a guild or academy in various areas of the visual arts and crafts.
