Maya Angelou

We note with sadness the death if American writer Maya Angelou at the age of 86, author of I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. I imagine Trollope would have been astonished at her success as a black woman raised in Arkansas, given his insights into the country when he travelled there at around the time of the Civil War. Angelou once said that “if you spend all your time trying to be normal you will never realise how amazing you can be.”  I think Trollope showed that there is also beauty to be found in the everyday.
