Just Give Me A Cool Drink Of Water Fore I Diiie, Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water ‘fore I Diiie is a 1971 anthology of 38 poems by Maya Angelou, nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1972. Some of the poems in the book were first published by GWP Records as songs in The Poetry of Maya Angelou, a 1969 recording by Angelou.
Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water ‘fore I Diiie, Angelou’s first collection of poetry, was released after she rose to fame with her acclaimed first autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. Angelou would subsequently release autobiographies and volumes of poetry at certain intervals, and in the 1970s, her poetry was published just before or just after the release of a new memoir.
Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water ‘fore I Diiie was followed by Angelou’s second autobiography, Gather Together in My Name (1974), and her second book of poems, Oh Pray My Wings Are Gonna Fit Me Well (1975).
