Description
Collecting her first four books of poetry—Once (1968); Revolutionary Petunias and Other Poems (1973); Good Night, Willie Lee, I'll See You in the Morning (1979); and Horses Make a Landscape Look More Beautiful (1985)—as well as 16 previously uncollected poems, this 1991 anthology gathers the first 25 years of Alice Walker's poetry. The Pulitzer Prize– and National Book Award–winning author includes notes that provide historical perspective on spiritual and political issues of the era.

"While [Walker's] voice has moved from earlier, calligraphic images of Africa and life in the South to the more sinuous and elegant line of longer poems written for friends, relatives, and lovers, her themes remain constant. Over the decades, the variegated beauty of black faces and voices, power and its skewed effect on the lives of women, the rich fire of sexual attraction, and a passionate attachment to the earth and its creatures inform and shape her poetry. She is not without a sense of humor both wry and scathing: a 'found poem' she built from The New York Review of Books includes the line 'She assumes her romance / with Du Bois / to be as interesting as any other aspect / of his career.' Or, in her verse to poetry: 'Poetry laid back / and played dead / until the morning'."—Library Journal
