Description

Alice Walker has always turned to poetry to express some of her most personal and deeply felt concerns. She has said that her poems-even the happy ones-emerge from an accumulation of sadness, when she stands again in the sunlight. This collection] has two fine strengths-a music that comes along sometimes, as sad and cheery as a lonely woman's whistling-and Miss Walker's own tragicomic gifts (New York Times Book Review).

More wonderful words from Walker, whose prose manages to be more poetic than many a novel.
LibraryThing member cemagoc
She's a wonderful poet. So raw and radical. You should read this.

The poems in this collection are generally short with fairly short lines. Many poems provide insights into the African-American experience or reflect on events of the 1960s and 1970s. I found the poetry enjoyable.
