Synopsis : 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).
Critique: However much we like Alice Walker's fictional characters, it's still a treat when she speaks in her own voice, whether in essays or poems. The poems in this work show the impressive range that voice has, from the outrage of "First, They Said," to the quiet and lovely "These Mornings of Rain," to poems about family. Walker makes a lyrical world big enough to seamlessly weave these disparate parts together.
