About the Author
An influential poet and feminist writer, Audre Lorde (1934-1992) dedicated both her life and her creative talent to confronting and addressing the injustices of racism, sexism, and homophobia. She is the author of twelve books, including Undersong and A Burst of Light.
In these poems Lorde reveals a new maturity through language denser and richer than she has used previously. The anger she expresses comes from an awareness of suffering--both current . . . and past . . . --but is balanced by a tenderness born of love.
