Sister outsider : essays and speeches by Audre Lorde ( Book )
23 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in English and held by 1,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Presenting the essential writings of black lesbian poet and feminist writer Audre Lorde, SISTER OUTSIDER celebrates an influential voice in twentieth-century literature. In this charged collection of fifteen essays and speeches, Lorde takes on sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, and class, and propounds social difference as a vehicle for action and change. Her prose is incisive, unflinching, and lyrical, reflecting struggle but ultimately offering messages of hope. This commemorative edition includes a new foreword by Lorde scholar and poet Cheryl Clarke, who celebrates the ways in which Lorde's philosophies resonate more than twenty years after they were first published. These landmark writings are, in Lorde's own words, a call to "never close our eyes to the terror, to the chaos which is Black which is creative which is female which is dark which is rejected which is messy which is. . . ." Reviews"...it's been almost a quarter of a century since Audre Lorde's essays and speeches in Sister Outsider made an indelible mark on 20th-century literature. But the words of the black lesbian feminist poet seem as lyrical and unforgettable, and, sadly, as relevant today as when she first tackled everything from racism and homophobia to ageism and class dichotomies. A must-have book that every lesbian should read."'Curve Editor's Pick "Lorde was a brilliant feminist poet and intellectual whose theories on the power of embracing our internal contradictions as well as the differences between people and groups is the way to powerful coalition building and social progress." 'New York Post, Sunday "Poet and librarian Lorde collected 15 of her finest essays and speeches in this 1984 volume. With her poet's command of language, she addresses sexism, racism, black women, black lesbians, eroticism, and more. Still powerful."'Library Journal, Starred Review"Audre Lorde is a passionate sage. I say 'is' and not 'was' because her keen insights continue to provoke and sustain us and give us courage. The reissue of this book is a gift to longtime admirers and to new readers who have yet to discover the power and grace and splendid audacity of Audre Lorde."'Valerie Miner, author of After Eden and professor of feminist studies at Stanford University"[Lorde's] works will be important to those truly interested in growing up sensitive, intelligent, and aware."'New York Times From the Trade Paperback edition

The marvelous arithmetics of distance : poems 1987-1992 by Audre Lorde ( Book )
10 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection, 39 poems written between 1987 and 1992, is the final volume by Audre Lorde, "a major American poet whose concerns are international, and whose words have left their mark on many lives," in the words of Adrienne Rich. Audre Lorde was a poet of the city of her birth, New York, as well as of other urban landscapes. She spoke of the Caribbean, Africa, Europe. She brought to all these places a true cosmopolitan vision, one dissatisfied with the usual description of things, one eager for truth-telling, for change. She spoke of her hopes for this, her final offering to the world she traveled: "Beyond the penchant for easy definitions, false exactitudes, we share a hunger for enduring value, relationship beyond hierarchy and outside reproach, a hunger for life measures, complex, direct, and flexible....I want this book to be filled with shards of light thrown off from the shifting tensions between the dissimilar, for that is the real stuff of creation and growth."
