From the Publisher:
Culled from the private writings of the black lesbian feminist poet, this chronicle of her uncompromising life covers Lorde's childhood in Harlem, her groundbreaking career as a poet, her advocacy for various causes, and her final ten years in St. Croix battling breast cancer. Winner of the 2005 Lambda Award. Reprint.Culled from the private writings of the black lesbian feminist poet, this chronicle of her uncompromising life covers Lorde's childhood in Harlem, her groundbreaking career as a poet, her advocacy for various causes, and her final ten years in St. Croix battling breast cancer. Winner of the 2005 Lambda Award. Reprint.During her lifetime, Audre Lorde (1934-1992), author of the landmark Cancer Journals, created a mythic identity for herself that retains its vitality to this day. Drawing from the private archives of the poet's estate and numerous interviews, Alexis De Veaux demystifies Lorde's iconic status, charting her conservative childhood in Harlem; her early marriage to a white, gay man with whom she had two children; her emergence as an outspoken black feminist lesbian; and her canonization as a seminal poet of American literature.
Annotation:
A life of the black lesbian poet and feminist Audre Lorde (1934-92).
