    Perhaps Walker should be better known for her poetry than simply best known for The Color Purple The poems are about race as well as being a woman This kindle edition includes a brief biography with photos of the author.

    Some wonderful stuff here My three favorites The hopeful WE ALONEWe alone can devalue gold by not caring if it falls or rises in the marketplace Wherever there is gold there is a chain, you know, and if your chain is gold so much the worse for you.Feathers, shells and sea shaped stones are all as rare.This could be our revolution to love what is plentiful as much as what s scarce The angry THE DIAMONDS ON LIZ s BOSOMThe diamonds on Liz s bosomare not as brightas his eyesthe morning they took him [...]

    Read in Her Blue Body Everything We Know Earthling Poems 1965 1990 CompleteActual rating 3.75 starsYet again, Walker failed to live up to the musicality of her early poetry, but this collection had much poetry and power than either Revolutionary Petunias or Goodnight Willie Lee, I ll See You in the Morning Walker is definitely moving away from the poetry as space around the words technique that she employed in her earlier work, and the final leap into a poetry of what is present is reflected in [...]

    Reading poems by Alice Walker never cease to leave me eager to write to capture what I am and what I feel about the world around me at this very moment I imagine her at her desk, perhaps in a room of her own, working through her own pain and uncomfortable emotions and creating these lovely and accessible musings, often with a little twist like this one This could be our revolution To love what is plentifulas much aswhat s scarce or On these blustery morningsin a citythat could be wetfrom my kiss [...]

  5. Julia Tracey says:
    Some lovely poems here The first 2 3 of the collection inspired and delighted me I found the last third not weaker, but less interesting in general That may be my opinion vs a general commentary on Alice Walker, whose work I love Perhaps they are from a different period in her life I just didn t feel the lure of the last section The up front poems are riveting Enjoyed this, and will keep it on my poetry shelf Which is a good thing.

  6. Kelsey says:
    phew so beautiful and honest WalkerWhen I no longer have your heartI will not request your bodyyour presenceor even your polite conversation.I will go away to a far countryseparated from you by the sea on which I cannot walk and refrain from even sending lettersdescribing my pain.


  7. Megan says:
    Sometimes startling, sometimes brutal, sometimes comforting There s an energy in a lot of these poems that really made them burrow down into my consciousness, which is just what I want from poetry, anyway My favorite poems were the ones that laid forth our relationship to the world natural and social worlds, in particular and that affirmed our power of redefinition of that relationship, which Walker demonstrated so elegantly in We Alone We AloneWe alone can devalue goldby not caringif it falls o [...]

  8. Mary says:
    A collection of poems by Alice Walker I love how her spirit and ethical sense comes through each poem My favorite poem is We Alone which calls us to eschew a love of precious metals and gems which cause ruin to the earth and the people who mine for these rare materials This could be our revolution to love what is plentiful as much as what s scarce.

  9. Laura Jane says:

    It is not enough to be interminable one must also be precise Alice Walker s poems here turn a sharp focus onto the world of the 1970s and early 1980s interpersonal relationships the experience and politics of being a person, an African American woman, an African American, a woman colonialism, exploitation and a love of the environment childhood, growth and friendship They do so with a keen, self critical and unflinching eye, a forensic sense of justice and a great generosity of spirit Infused wi [...]

    HorsesPoems that tell about the lives of black women, relate observations about white civilization in America, and ask us to imagine something kinder and better Highly recommended.

  20. Ellice says:
    This 1984 collection of poems by Alice Walker pays tribute to her forebears, especially a part Cherokee grandmother and a white great great grandfather who forced himself on her great great grandmother, and traces bits of these ancestors in Walker herself and the modern world It s amazing how much of what she writes still feels modern and relevant over 30 years later in 2017.
