This anthology represents Alice Walker’s complete earlier poetry,
from the summer of 1965 when she traveled to East Africa and
began the poems that would form her first collection, through her
poetry of the civil rights movement and beyond. Revelatory introductions
to each group of poems provide a special insight into the evolving
consciousness of one of the most remarkable and provocative literary
minds of our time.
The quest for peace and joy in a difficult world drives Walker's poetry. Even the most difficult moments can be redeemed, she seems to be saying in the excellent "Good Night Willie Lee, I'll See you in the Morning." Walker has grown as a poet, so that much of the strongest material comes in the later work, especially the wistful "Poem at Thirty-Nine." Highly recommended.
