In "Revolutionary Petunias", Alice Walker takes a break from being a novelist and delves into the literary world of poetry. Readers are better off because she did. Her poems are capable of summoning forth a full range of life with effortless inflections of a modest declaration. Declarations are frequently made through implication, and her poems have an enjoyable purity and sincerity about them. I was most attracted to and touched by the ones which dealt with her rural early years. I would say that her writing can be described best as showing in some way magically the inner nature of Walker. They are reserved, which is as refreshing as a barefoot stroll down a shaded dirt road that follows a river bank through the summer.
