In fact there is...Walker wrote about Black women struggling, without realization. Hughes' poem, "A Dream Deferred," defines Walker's reason for writing. As she states in her essay, "In Search of our Mother's Gardens," Black women of the past were not even consciouslly aware that they had a "dream," so by default that "dream" became deferred.
Personally I would call it an act of unintentional living.
