The Black Unicorn
The most acclaimed volume of poetry by the legendary 'Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet'
I have been woman
for a long time
beware my smile
I am treacherous with old magic
Filled with rage and tenderness, Audre Lorde's most acclaimed poetry collection speaks of mothers and children, female strength and vulnerability, renewal and revenge, goddesses and warriors, ancient magic and contemporary America. These are fearless assertions of identity, told with incantatory power.
