TOP 500 REVIEWERon 21 February 2012
Audre Lorde died in 1992 but these essays and speeches remain immensely potent testimonies to her bold, powerful and outspoken words as she confronts the patriarchal assumptions that might still reside at the heart of feminism. Taking issue with what she saw as the predominantly white, middle-class, Anglo-American nature of feminist activism, Lorde is a voice for difference rather than homogeneity, with her pleas to embrace the differences that exist beneath gender: differences of race, of age, of class, of sexuality, even of health (Lorde herself suffered from cancer).

Her voice is often unashamedly angry and yet there is always a plea for community, a hope of healing and a true ground for social and political change. Lorde is frequently uncomfortable reading as she forces us to reassess and expose our own ideological assumptions and blind-spots - but this is truly powerful stuff.

A classic text of black and queer feminism. Audre Lorde is a warrior poet and a writer you will never forget. Highly recommended.

I'm a Audre Lorde fan... I have read it before and still learned more second time around.
Superb intelligent writer and philosopher
