Baldwin’s works are also iconic because he wrote about the human experience, and this is always relevant because there is no experience or emotion that we cannot all relate to or share. Baldwin’s traveling abroad released him from the silent, confining lines of social and racial injustice in America; it freed him and simultaneously helped him to write and speak without inhibitions. This is something that a lot of writers had to contend with, especially if they had sponsors or were concerned with community backlash, something Baldwin cared nothing about because he was not writing to be popular.

Baldwin and His Sense of Responsibility Baldwin carried a great sense of responsibility. For example, during an interview with John Hall, he very candidly spoke about his personal sentiments concerning his status as a writer. During the initial part of the interview, Baldwin, whose early influences not only included his father, but James Arthur Baldwin also the church and Charles Dickens, asserted that the strain as a writer encompasses not only writing in simple terms, but also writing without allowing the audience to lead, or in other words dictate what he is attempting to say.

In a later poem titled “The Pusher,” included in Oh, Pray My Wings Are Gonna Fit Me Well, Angelou describes the role of the drug dealer in society. In the poem, the dealer proclaims his powers, and brags about his strength and smarts. Oh, Pray My Wings Are Gonna Fit Me Maya Angelou Well is divided into five distinct, untitled sections. In the 36 poems, Angelou continues to explore themes of love, social injustices, and other aspects of black life. In the poems, she addresses growing old, lost love, disconnection and isolation, and the effects of slavery.
