Born in New York, Audre Lorde ( 1934-93) described herself as ‘Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet’. She had her first poem published while still at school and her last the year she died of cancer. Her extraordinary belief in the power of language – of speaking – to articulate selfhood, confront injustice and bring about change in the world remains as transformative today as it was then, and no less urgent.
This edition brings Lorde’s essential poetry, speeches and essays, including ‘The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House’, together in one volume for the first time.
With a preface by Reni Eddo-Lodge and an introduction bij Sara Ahmed.
