Synopsis

Alice Walker by Prof. Harold Bloom

A champion for African-American and women's rights, Alice Walker reflects her beliefs in her passionate writing. Walker is best known for her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Color Purple , a compelling work that boldly tackles the issues of racism and sexism in the rural South. Alice Walker, New Edition features a penetrating introduction by Harold Bloom that helps set the stage for this comprehensive critical portrait of one of the most influential writers of the last 30 years. A useful chronology and a concise bibliography further enhance this updated literary resource, which is perfect for student research.

Reviews

An excellent and balanced discussion...

A publishing venture almost without precedent both in its scope and in the fact that it is guided by a single critical intelligence.

Harold Bloom adds some fantastic critical literary guides, providing interpretations and issues that should reach a wide audience from adults to young adults at the high school and college levels.
