by Audre Lorde - £12.99 Silver Press (2017)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780995716223 | ISBN 10: 0995716226
Audre Lorde (1934-1992) described herself as 'Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet'. Born in New York, 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 foster selfhood, articulate injustice and bring about change in the world remains as transformative today as it was then, and no less urgent.
This edition brings together her essential poetry, speeches and essays, including ‘The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House’, in one volume for first time.
