Since the publication of The Color Purple in 1983, Alice Walker has gained a reputation as one of the most popular and most controversial writers in the African American literary tradition. This book explains Walker's project as a "womanist" writer and as a cultural and political activist who increasingly styles herself as a New Age visionary. The author traces Walker's distinctive themes of child abuse and women's sexuality and shows the development of Walker's theories of racial hybridity, spirituality and goddess worship as wellas her treatment of African American history. In an original reading of her oeuvre, Lauret shows convincingly that Walker continues to stretch her own, and her readers', imaginative visions.
