The essential writings of black lesbian poet and feminist writer Audre Lorde.

'The woman's place of power within each of us is neither white nor surface; it is dark, it is ancient, and it is deep'

The revolutionary writings of Audre Lorde gave voice to those 'outside the circle of this society's definition of acceptable women'. Uncompromising, angry and yet full of hope, this collection of her essential prose - essays, speeches, letters, interviews - explores race, sexuality, poetry, friendship, the erotic and the need for female solidarity, and includes her landmark piece 'The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master's House'.
