Im doing Maya Angelou’s poems for the literary canon. Arguing why she should be placed in it regardless if she subverts the ‘norm’. How do i argue my points? So far i’ve only argued for why she should be placed in the canon but should I be arguing against?? I’m so confused.

My question is: ‘The subject matter of valued texts is usually considered to be serious, dealing with moral and philosophical topics of acknowledged importance’. Based on this principle, to what extent do Maya Angelou’s poems deserve canonical status?

This is for the English Literature coursework. We have a choice whether to do marxism/feminism/eco-critical etc. I chose to do the canon which are basically highly acclaimed writers who you’d see in your GCSE papers e.g. Shakespeare etc. And I’m arguing that Maya Angelou should be considered to be apart of this canon regardless that most of these writers are white dead males.
