"Refusing to be
circumscribed by any simple identity, Audre Lorde writes as a Black
woman, a mother, a daughter, a Lesbian, a feminist, a visionary;
poems of elemental wildness and healing, nightmare and lucidity. Her
rhythms and accents have the timelessness of a poetry which extends
beyond white Western politics, beyond the anger and wisdom of Black
America, beyond the North American earth, to Abomey and the Dahomeyan
Amazons. These are poems nourished in an oral tradition, which also
blaze and pulse on the page, beneath the reader's eye."
