A revision sheet of bullet points on the poem Caged Bird by Maya Angelou

**1. The diction describing the bird that is free is positive and uplifting whereas the diction describing the caged bird is negative and carries implications of ill -treatment. In particular – compare and contrast the verbs “leaps” and “stalks”. The verb ‘to leap’ connotes happiness and contentment hence the expression ‘to leap for joy’. The verb ‘to stalk’ has dark connotations; it implies slowness and stagnation. **
