Publisher's Summary

A definitive selection of Audre Lorde's "intelligent, fierce, powerful, sensual, provocative, indelible" (Roxane Gay) prose and poetry, for a new generation of listeners.

Self-described "black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet" Audre Lorde is an unforgettable voice in 20th-century literature, and one of the first to center the experiences of black, queer women. This essential collection showcases her indelible contributions to intersectional feminism, queer theory, and critical race studies in 12 landmark essays and more than 60 poems-selected and introduced by one of our most powerful contemporary voices on race and gender, Roxane Gay.

Among the essays included here are: "The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action"; "The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master's House" "I Am Your Sister"; and excerpts from the American Book Award-winning A Burst of Light.

The poems are drawn from Lorde's nine volumes, including The Black Unicorn and National Book Award finalist From a Land Where Other People Live. Among them are: "Martha"; "A Litany for Survival"; "Sister Outsider"; and "Making Love to Concrete".
