Alice Walker by Prof. Harold Bloom

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.
