   Very powerful poems. But not for the average lover of poems.
Most people find poetry to be full of love and beauty, which they will not find here unless they look real hard. The lady has some remarkable wording and even some of the lines stand on their own without adding anything more. If you can read something and appreciate even parts of it, you have accomplished a feat that has been overlooked by many others. Her poems are based on lesbian relationships that would go against the grain of most people I know, but I have read a few selected works from a web site and was attracted by her ability to weave some very pretty. That is the reason I have ordered two of her books. Since I have read the books, they are now headed for my local library. And I can guarantee that my local library will dispose of them as quickly as possible. I first checked to see if I could get them there, but not even one copy existed in the entire area.
   A beautiful voice
I bought this for my daughter, who loves poetry. Despite several courses in poetry, she had never learned anything about Audre Lorde. She is a black, civil rights activist, and feminist poet who has dedicated her creative work to addressing these injustices.
   Clear, strong poetry from a remarkable woman
For years, Audre has been a favorite of mine. My favorite poetry by hers addresses fear, courage, and strength. She is not afraid to face difficult subjects. She is also not so abstract as unreadable, but manages to get her message across beautifully.
