This is an innovative book in which the author, Dr. Robert Matunda, analyzes rhetorical strategies in Alice Walker's four narratives with the goal of expanding the body of investigation relating linguistics to literature. Particularly, the author demonstrates how Walker's linguistic elements are mediums of messages. Equally, while using various linguistic paradigms, the author presents to his readers significant cultural values of African and African-American people as envisaged in Walker's selected narratives. Finally, Dr. Matunda demonstrates that though we do not frequently imagine that writers purposefully manipulate the linguistic features of their creative work, it is clear that Walker is very much concerned with managing many linguistic elements to achieve her artistic effects, and this fact only reinforces the impression that Walker is an artist of complexity and depth.
