Princess of Peachburg
|Author: ||Wallace, Anne|
These poems celebrate the "honeysuckle and manure" of the Alabama landscape, conveying at once its deep sweetness and its darker undertones of poverty and pain. The poet calls us to travel with her down Peachburg Road to see the sand, the mud, red clay, the furious goldenrods, the bend of Miss Lucy's curve, the country graveyard topped with plastic valentines.
"Each poem is a leaf from an album of family portraits, but the sitters are revealed warts and all. . . . The literature of Alabama is richer for Anne Wallace's clear poetic memory and her evocative poems." - The Montgomery Independent
