Walkers complete poems, including new and previously unpublished verse, collected for the first time-with authors notes that provide historical perspective on spiritual and political issues of the last three decades.
This title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 9-10, Poetry)
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.
