Book Title: The Collected Poems of Audre Lorde

Author: Audre Lorde

Book Description:

I first read Audre Lorde when I was in college and will never forget the fire she lit in my imagination. The graceful power of her poetry and prose as she delves the complexities of poverty, racism, sexism, homophobia, and violence are constant sources of inspiration for me and my research. Lorde transcends the boundaries of any field as she speaks directly to the need for scholarship, writing and tireless research into these perplexing and dynamic issues.
