Analysis of Phenomenal Woman
by Maya Angelou TPFASTT itle- According
to this title, I think
the poem is about
a woman that is
phenomenal. récis- This poem is about
the idea that it is not beauty
that makes a woman
phenomenal, but the way
she holds herself. igurative Language- 3
examples! "I'm a woman phenomenally. Phenomenal woman. That's me."

This is an example of repetition. It makes the reader associate the author as the phenomenal woman and strengthens the word phenomenal. "It's the fire in my eyes,
and the flask of my teeth,
the swing in my waist,
and the joy in my feet."

This is an example of Maya's
detail. She uses much
detail in her description
of herself in order to
portray her self-confidence
in every aspect of herself. 2.) 1.) "The sun of my smile."

This is an example of alliteration. Maya uses
alliteration when describing herself in order
to portray herself to the reader as elegant. 3.) ttitude-The
speaker's attitude
is bold and
confident. She uses
specific details
without fear when
describing herself
and talks about herself
in a grandiose way. hifts- Maya starts
off explaining how
she is not the cutest
or best built woman,
but she shifts to
explaining the good
things about herself. itle- It hasn't really changed
meaning much. It is about a
phenomenal woman, but it also
describes what a phenomenal
woman is. It's significant
because it sets the poem off on
the right start. heme- It is
not how a
woman looks
or what she
does that
makes her
but how she
herself and
her inner
mystery. Ferguson, R. Phenomenal Woman. N.d. Durban Youth CouncilWeb. 6 Feb 2013. <http://www.dyc.co.za/projects/phenomenalwoman/phenomenalwoman.php>.
