by Alice Walker

Condition: Good Condition/Fair

Harcourt Brace, 1973. First Edition. Hardcover. Good Condition/Fair. Ex-library with typical marks, moderate shelf wear, light yellowing; good solid book. 70 pages. The jacket has some creasing and discoloring; cut on back; wrapped and taped to covers. "These poems are about Revolutionaries and Lovers; and about the loss of compassion, trust, and the ability to expand in love that marks the end of hopeful strategy-whether in love or in revolution. They are also about (and for) those few embattled souls who remain painfully committed to beauty and to love even while facing the firing squad. The first section of this book is largely autobiographical. As presented, it is a matter of roots, of place, a fascination with the patterns of Specific Life. It is a search for the essence of a people found in one's own blood. It points a present and future direciton that is quite new, though it denies nothing of the past." Quantity Available: 1.
