Warrior Poet – A Biography of Audre Lorde

33.25

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.
