Alice Walker's Childhood

Satisfactory Essays
Walkers essay is great of getting her audience to reminisce on the past by describing some childhood memories of life on the farm with the use of her beautiful language to share an image in Walkers memory. Walker uses the words “gigantic” to describe the size, “delicious red and thirst¬¬-quenching” for the look and taste of the watermelons. When Walker and her daughter are in the potato garden she compares the experience to digging up gold by doing this she reminds us of our innocent amazement as children reminding the viewer of their past.
